I work mainly in problems of Theoretical Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics.

During my Master's, I have worked on the subject of Quantum Spin Systems, namely on the use of Field Theoretical Methods to study quantum Heisenberg spin chains and also, on the study of 1D Quantum Spin Models with known exact ground-states of the Matrix product type.

Currently, I have been devoting my time collaborating with Niaz Ali Khan and João P. Viana Lopes, in the study of the transport properties of 1D tight-binding models, with spatially correlated cellular disorder, namely by using HPC numerical techniques.
