I graduated in Physics in 2000 at the Instituto de Física (UFRGS), and obtained my M.Sc.and Ph.D degrees in the same institution respectively in 2003 and 2007. Both my M.Sc and Ph.D have been developed partially in CEA-Saclay. I was a post-doc researcher in CEA-Saclay in 2008 and at the University of Leiden in 2009.

I'm now an associate professor at the Intituto de Física at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) since 2010.

My current research interests are in two different lines of research. One is related to the properties of glassy materials and the glass transition; and the second is related to nanopores in alimumina and the physical properties of these surfaces. See explanation in section Projects/Research
