about me

Since young age I enjoy solving problems using logical thinking. I found my tribe in middle school while participating of math and natural sciences olympiads. Physics, in particular, turned out to be my biggest and most interesting challenge in high school. Electromagnetism classes inspired me to apply to the physics bachelor course at Federal University of Pará (UFPA) in the north of Brazil.

During the bachelor studies, my scientific initiation in theoretical physics made me realize how much I appreciate the research process. I joined the masters program at UFPA with a scholarship funded by CAPES to investigate a quantum field theory that describes interactions between light and matter on a plane.

After that, I received a scholarship through the Brazilian federal government program 'Science without Borders' (CNPq) to pursue my PhD research at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. My  research concerned the investigation of interaction effects, through quantum field theory methods, in low-dimensional condensed-matter systems, such as graphene and topological insulators.

At the moment, I am interested in the field of data science, which I started to explore/work through Udacity's Nanodegrees.
