Graduated in Physics (1996), Master’s in Physics (1998), and Ph.D. in Physics from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP) (2002). Postdoctoral fellow at Technische Universität Dortmund in Germany (2005). He was a researcher at LNLS (2004-2007) and coordinator of the SXS beamline at LNLS (2006-2011). Since 2007 he has been a professor at the Institute of Physics at UNICAMP. He works in the area of surface physics and the chemistry of materials. He has experience in synchrotron radiation and surface physics, emphasizing the determination of the surface’s electronic and crystallographic structure through spectroscopy, electron diffraction, and microscopy techniques (XPS, XPD, LEED, STM, and XMCD). Topics of interest are: model catalysts, metallic alloys, ultrathin films, supported metallic oxides, magnetic circular dichroism in ultrathin films, nanoparticles, and on-surface synthesis.
