Research

I received a BSc in Physics from Universidade Federal Fluminense in 2005. In 2006, I received a MSc in Condensed Matter Physics from Universidade Federal Fluminense for woking with theoretical spintronics.

In 2010, I received a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics from Universidade Federal Fluminense. During the PhD I worked with theoretical modelling of carbon based nanodevices, focusing on electronic transport properties.

Theory & Modelling Group

At the moment, I work as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under the supervision of Professor Mauro Ferreira at the Trinity College Dublin School of Physics. At Professor Mauro's group, I am involved in the theoretical modelling of random silver nanowire networks.

My general interest in research is theoretical modelling of properties from nanoscopic devices and systems.
