Haroldo Cavalcanti Pinto


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Escola de Engenharia de São Carlos (EESC)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated (2001) and Ph.D. (2005) in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany. He held a Post-Doctoral stage at the Institute of Materials Science and Technology of the Technische Universität Wien, Vienna, Austria. He led for almost 04 years (2006-2009) a Research Group in the field of Mechanical Properties and Non-Destructive Materials Characterization using X-Ray Diffraction at the Max-Planck Institut für Eisenforschung, in Düsseldorf, Germany. He is Associate Professor (MS-5.3), on a tenure track pathway, for the chair of Physical Metallurgy at the Department of Materials Engineering (SMM) at the São Carlos School of Engineering (EESC) of the University of São Paulo (USP), São Carlos campus. He took a 12-month sabbatical (08/2021 to 08/2022) as Visiting Professor at the MikroTribologie Centrum TC of the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) in Germany, with funding from FAPESP and the European Research Council (ERC). He is a fully accredited advisor in 02 Graduate Programs of the USP: in Materials Science and Engineering (CAPES Concept 6) and Mechanical Engineering (CAPES Concept 7). He coordinates the Center for Research and Analysis of Engineering Materials (CEPAME), a Center for Multiuser Equipments at USP: CEPAME works on the study of the correlation between the manufacturing processes of engineering materials from the metal-ceramic binomial, the phase transformations and the formation of microstructure, residual stresses and crystallographic texture in materials for hydrogen generation and solid storage, structural, tribological and biomedical applications, among others. CEPAME employs advanced characterization tools, such as in-situ techniques with synchrotron light as well as lab X-ray and electron diffraction, to elucidate and understand the correlations between the composition, structure, manufacture and properties of engineering materials, coatings and surfaces. He is Associate Editor of the journal Frontiers in Materials (JOURNAL IMPACT FACTOR 2020 3.515), section Structural Materials. He serves on the LNLS-CNPEM's X-Ray Diffraction Proposal Evaluation Committee. In 2021, he was elected a member of the LNLS Users Committee by the Brazilian Community of Materials Engineers interested in the use of new advanced characterization techniques and the highest energies available in the new Brazilian synchrotron light source, SIRIUS. He serves as a Reviewer in more than 15 International Journals with JCR. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
