I hold a professor and researcher position at the Physics Institute of the University of São Paulo - Brazil, and I work full time at the Department of Applied Physics. My published scientific papers can be found here.
After many years working in experimental Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion, even developing and using Artificial Neural Networks to forecast the incoming of disruptive instabilities that occur during a tokamak plasma discharge, my interests recently moved to investigating the High Diluted Solutions and to the areas of Basic Physics (see an interesting paper about the Lifter – Asymmetric Flying Capacitor) and History of Science.
I am very much interested in studying the Spiritism philosophy as originally proposed by Allan Kardec. The way I understand, the spiritist (paranormal) phenomena are produced in the very accordance to Natural Laws, which have not been discovered or well understood yet by nowadays science. The main difficulty one usually faces when trying to investigate this type of phenomena is that they are not reproducible at all. This fact, however, did not prevent great scientists as Sir William Crookes (see a very interesting book), Charles Richet (see a very interesting book) and Sir Oliver Lodge, or even distinguished people as Arthur Conan Doyle, (see very interesting book), to get deeply involved with this fascinating subject.
