I am a PhD candidate (ABD) of physics from University of Campinas, Brazil. Currently my work covers the area of atomistic simulations of nanomaterials, mainly studying wetting, mechanical and electronic properties of carbon-based nanostructures and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC), as well as their interactions with liquids. In 2016, I spent one year abroad working with Prof. Pulickel Ajayan at Rice University. It was a very fruitful collaboration, where I studied mechanical properties of systems like h-BN/graphene and TMDC van der Waals heterostructures. I received my B.S. in Physics from Centro Universitário Franciscano, studying the electronic properties of doped graphene sheets by DFT calculations and later classical molecular dynamics simulations of carbon nanotubes. My master’s in Nanoscience and Advanced Materials was obtained from Federal University of ABC. There I studied properties of peptide nanotubes by umbrella sampling simulations as well as its interactions with dyes. During my master’s I worked a period abroad with Prof. Peter Tieleman from University of Calgary on coarse grained molecular dynamics.
