About me


Prof. Andre Thomaz received his BSc. in Physics from State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in 2004. He obtained his Master degree from State University of Campinas in 2007 with a disseration focused on how to integrate Single/Multiphoton Confocal Microscopy and Optical Tweezers. He obtained his PhD degree from State University of Campinas in 2013 defending a thesis about a Photonic Integrated Platform and its Application on Quantum Dots and Biological Systems. 

In 2013-2014 he worked as a post doc reseacher at the National Instituto of Photonics Applied to Cellular Biology [INFABIC] under the supervision of Prof. Hernandes Carvalho from the Biology Institute-UNICAMP in the field of Forster Resonant Energy Transfer [FRET]

In 2014-2015 her worked as a Research Assistant at University of Iillinois at Urbana-Champaign-US (UIUC) in the group of Prof. Paul Selvin studying the molecular basis of memory formation using super resolution microscopy [PALM/STORM]

Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of the Biophotonics Group at the Quantum Electronics Department of the Institute of Physics “Gleb Wataghin”.
