I am a Professor in the Department of Astromony  at Universidade de Sao Paulo. My research group studies gas dynamics and high energy  phenomena in a wide variety of astrophysical systems: from the Sun to clusters of galaxies, mainly employing  numerical magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD) methods. For this aim we use sophisticated numerical algorithms to carry out multi-dimensional  simulations of astrophysical sources and diffuse media in high performance computing. 

I am also involved with the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) Collaboration for construction of the largest Gamma-Ray Astronomical Observatory and am  the Brazilian PI of the ASTRI Mini-Array the precursor of the CTA.
