Research activities

My research activity has focused in classical molecular dynamics simulations (all atom and coarse grained) of biological systems and soft matter. I received a PhD in Chemistry from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in 2016 under supervision of Prof. Paulo A. Netz with a visiting period in Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPIP) under supervision of Prof. Kurt Kremer. In my thesis, I have performed classical molecular dynamics studies of smart polymers systems and multiscale methods. Since joining the Institut Charles Sadron in Strasbourg, in the group of Prof. Carlos Marques (MCube) as a postdoc, my research has been devoted to molecular dynamics simulations of membrane-forming fatty alcohol systems in collaboration with Prof. Fabrice Thalmann, L’OrĂ©al and Computing Center for Research and Technology (CCRT).
