I’m a PhD Candidate in experimental high-energy Physics at Cornell University. Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I hold a B.A. from Reed College, in Portland, Oregon, and a M.S. from Cornell. I work in two different experiments searching for dark matter using complementary strategies: with the larger CMS Collaboration smashing protons together at the LHC, and with a smaller team at Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati, Italy, looking for dark photons (PADME Collaboration). My work revolves around data analysis, detector data reconstruction, and upgrade studies for the next generation of high-energy physics detectors, in particular the CMS pixel detector.
