FlowTrans Experienced Researcher
ORG Geophysical, Norway
The current project I am working on aims at the development of a 3D inversion algorithm at the electromagnetic response for induced polarization at the identification of oil reservoirs offshore.
I have got my bachelor in Computer Science with emphasis in computational physics and complex systems. Previous works include study of population dynamics and chaotic behavior in granular media. Degrees obtained in Brazil at UFLA, and at the Institute for Space Research.
I recently concluded my Ph.D. at ETH Zürich. My thesis investigated the sand transport in Aeolian saltation. My results are mainly from numerical simulations using DEM, which were compared with experiments done later at the wind tunnel. The main challenge at the numerical modelling was the momentum coupling between the sand grains and the airflow.
I cannot live without lifting weights at the gym. I enjoy movies, cartoons, history, languages, cultures, psychology, and spiritualism.
The different perspective of life between people from the developed and developing countries is my main personal open question.
