Welcome

Hi there. I am a PhD candidate in Astronomy at the University of São Paulo and I’m working under supervision of Professor Rodrigo Nemmen.

I have interest in basically everything in astronomy, although my focus at the moment is on high energy astrophysics: gamma-rays originated by the up-scattering of soft photons by ultrarelativistic particles in the vicinities of supermassive black holes and neutron stars.

By now I’m using the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) to explore the origin of gamma-rays around supermassive black holes in a specific accretion scenario, the so called ADAF mode.
