I am a professor at the International Institute of Physics (IIP) in Natal. I work on theoretical condensed matter physics. In my research I apply analytical methods of quantum field theory to study quantum materials. In particular, I am interested in problems related to strong correlations and magnetism in low dimensions. 

I am a member of the Quantum Information and Quantum Matter Group at IIP.
