Cleber R. Mendonca received his PhD in physics in 2000 from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. In 2001 he worked as a postdoc at the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL), University of Central Florida. He was hired at the Sao Carlos Institute of Physics, University of Sao Paulo in 2001, where he is currently Full Professor. In 2003, together with other professors, he founded the Photonics Group at the IFSC/USP. From 2005 to 2007, he was a postdoc at Harvard University, where he worked on femtosecond-laser microfabrication and ultrafast dynamics in solids. In 2022 he was a visiting researcher visiting professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Photonic Materials group. He is a member of the Fulbright Alumni, is a senior member of Optica (formerly known as The Optical Society - OSA), and member of Materials Research Society (MRS) and SPIE. He published ca. 314 papers in refereed journals, which received ca. 5,100 citations (h = 36) in the Web of Science, and 7,242 citations (h = 42) in Google Scholar, in July, 2023, filed 5 patents, and supervised 40 MSc and PhD students. In 2010 he was awarded the ICO/ICTP Gallieno Denardo award. Prof. Mendonca has led research into the nonlinear spectroscopy of novel photonic materials and advanced processing of materials with ultrashort laser pulses.
