"My research interest is currently focused on superstring theory, a strong candidate to become a unified theory of matter and the fundamental forces of nature, including gravity, which would contain as an extreme case the Standard Model of elementary particles and interactions. Superstring theory has already some partial successes in statistical mechanics and quantum black holes, in approaches to solutions of the cosmological constant, in resolving anomalies and divergences occurring in quantum field theories. It also provides viable candidates as constituents of dark matter.

In the past, my projects and research results have been about statistical mechanics and elementary particles.

Teaching, I've offered several times in the last 15 years, the General Relativity and Cosmology courses at graduate level and as an advanced elective in undergraduate. During that same time I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses such as Statistical Mechanics, Subatomic Physics, Electromagnetism, Electrodynamics and Advanced Quantum Mechanics. Teaching and researching, in the last three years and working in the area of strings, I have had the opportunity to lead two monographs and three master's degree final works, one of them in the stage of completion."
