About

I am a theoretical physicist at Perimeter Institute and University of Waterloo. I love differential geometry and quantum field theory, so that I found a very nice spot to move between these two topics: Relativistic Quantum Information, an area that studies how to probe quantum field theories.

My undergrad was in mathematical physics. I did it in UNICAMP (Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil) and during the time I spent there I was granted two fellowships for studying a functional analysis approach to infinite dimensional quantum mechanical systems and extended bodies in general relativity. During my masters I formulated a covariant model for multiple detectors in globally hyperbolic spacetimes and studied its properties. I am currently enrolled in the University of Waterloo's PhD program doing research on particle detectors and how to use them to measure the gravitational field directly and indirectly.
