Dr. Magalhaes graduated in Physics at the University of Brasilia (1984), received her Master's degree in Physics (in the field of elementary particles) from the University of Sao Paulo (1987) and her Ph.D. degree in Physics (on signal filtering in gravitational wave detectors) from the University of Sao Paulo (1992). She has had four post-doctorate experiences, at: University of Sao Paulo, Louisiana State University (USA), National Institute for Space Research and University of Victoria (Canada). Presently she occupies the position of Professor (Associate II) at the Federal University of Sao Paulo. She has experience in the fields of Physics (with emphasis on Gravitation and Astrophysics, including Cosmology,) and Engineering (with emphasis on signal analysis, mathematical modelling of systems and electromechanical transducers). Recently she started collaborations on cetacean bioacoustics. She was member of the former National Institute of Science and Techology in Astrophysics. She is a member of the: Brazilian Physics Society; International Society on General Relativity and Gravitation; Portuguese Socoety of Relativity and Gravitation; Brazilian Astronomical Society and International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The direct detection of gravitational waves will yield important consequences to Physics and Astrophysics. The SCHENBERG detector, built with FAPESP s financial support, is now in a testing phase. It is expected to be collecting scientific data in the next year. In principle, a detector such as SCHENBERG allows, among other results, the discrimination among different theories proposed t...
