B.Sc. in Physics from Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (1991), M.A. in Science from University of California at Berkeley (1994) and Ph.D. in Physics from University of California at Berkeley (1998), working with nonlinear vibrational spectroscopy of interfaces. Held a post-doc position at the University of California at Santa Barbara (1999-2001), where he used ultrafast pump-probe spectrocopy to investigate charge carrier photogeneration in semiconducting polymers. Was appointed Assistant Professor of Physics at Sao Paulo State University (Unesp) at Bauru (2001). Since 2003 is an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Sao Paulo (USP), located in Sao Carlos - SP, Brazil. Has experience in physical chemistry of interfaces, focusing on using sum-frequency vibrational spectroscopy to investigate the molecular arrangement at interfaces (adsorption, polyelectrolyte thin films, electrochemistry, Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett films). Another research topic includes the use of optical absorption, photoluminescence and pump-probe spectroscopy to investigate charge photogeneration and energy transfer in conjugated semiconducting polymers.
