Bachelor’s at Fisica from Università degli Studi di Firenze (2002) and doctorate at engenharia eletrônica e telecomunicações from Università degli Studi di Firenze (2006).
His research area is Nanotechnology, with emphasis in Plasmonics. At the present his research is focused on: physical-chemical characterization and green synthesis of Metal-carbon nanocomposites and luminescent carbon dots by laser ablation in liquid, using CO2 recycling; application of the NCs in optical sensing based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and surface enhanced Raman (SERS) spectroscopies; (bio-)sensing and optical characterization of nanocomposites, organic materials, and 2-D materials using Dielectric Loaded Waveguides (DLWG) photonic devices; catalysis by TiO2 nanoparticles and optical sensing using meso-micro fluidic devices.
He worked in Italy (2003-2009) in the Institute of Complex Systems of the Nacional Council of Research (I.S.C-C.N.R) in Florence as student, PhD and PostDoc, and in California (U.S.A 2010-2011) in the industry TriAlphaEnergy as R&D researcher to develop optical techniques for the diagnosis of fusion plasma with pulsed magnetic-field.
He is Adjunt Professor ( in brazilian sense) and responsible of the Laboratory of Optical Synthesis and Characterization of Nanomaterials (NanoLaser) at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro. He has been awarded with the grant “Jovem Cientista do nosso Estado do Rio de Janeiro” in 2016.
