About me

meBachelor’s degree in Physics (1997), Master’s degree in Physics (2000) and PhD degree in Sciences at the University of Campinas (2004). After beginning a postdoc at the University of Campinas (2004 -2005), I was hired as a Postdoctoral Research Associate fellow in the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL – Los Alamos-NM, USA) to work with Nuclear Magnetic and Quadrupolar Resonances at very low temperatures (mK), high magnetic fields (12 T) and hydrostatic pressures (3 GPa) mostly on strongly correlated electron systems (2005 – 2008). After that, I became the Jack E. Crow Fellow Postdoc at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee-FL, USA (2008 – 2011) focused on NMR at ultra high magnetic fields (up to 45 T) and low-T (mK). By the end of my 3 years term as the Jack Crow Fellow I was hired at the NHMFL as a Scholar/Scientist (Jul – Nov 2011). Just after that I became Professor at the University of Campinas located in my home town.

Current, I am Professor (level MS-3.2) and Head of the Department of Quantum Electronics at the University of Campinas, Brazil. I am also the coordinator of the solid-state NMR and Lab108 (nanomater) Laboratories at the Department of Quantum Electronics, “Gleb Wataghin” Institute of Physics, Unicamp.

Research Interests

Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, in particular, physics of Highly Correlated Electron Systems focused on phenomena associated with magnetism, unconventional superconductivity, heavy fermion physics and, Iron-based Superconductors. Other topics include: Intermetallics, Transition Metals oxides, Rare-earth magnetic materials and Diluted magnetic semiconductors, and the behavior of matter under extreme conditions such as very high magnetic fields (up to 45 T), ultra low temperatures (millikelvin) and high hydrostatic pressures (up to 30 kbar).

Skills and Techniques

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Nuclear Quadrupole Resonance (NQR) at high magnetic fields (up to 45 T), low temperatures (mK) and high pressures (up to 30 kbar). Electron Spin Resonance (ESR), Thermal, Transport and Magnetic Properties Measurements (Electrical Resistivity, Specific Heat, Hall effect, Magnetization, AC/DC susceptibility) with experience specially in the commercial apparatus of Quantum Design MPMS and PPMS. Expertise in 3He and Dilution (3He/4He) Refrigerator systems.
