· Hi! And welcome to my homepage. I hope you will
enjoy the stuff you will find here. I am a Researcher
(Assistant Professor) in the
in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Here are some things about me:
I was born in Bucharest, Romania and finished high school at the
'Nicolae Balcescu' High School (now 'St. Sava National College' ).
University, from where I graduated in 1995. The last year I studied
scholarship which continued in the following year. In 1996 I joined
my PhD in May 2000. From 2000 to 2002 I was a postdoc at the
Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, USA and from
2002 to 2006 I was at Brown University in Providence, RI, USA,
first as a postdoc (2002-2003) and then as a Assistant Professor of
Research. Between 2006-2009 I was an Assistant Professor at the
Tokyo, Japan, associated with the Physics Department. In 2010
I joined the Instituto de Fisica Teorica.

Here are some jokes sent a few years ago by a friend. They
are a compilation related to physics, mathematics, engineering,
chemistry, etc., a lot of them inside jokes (some of them I don't
understand myself-like the ones related to computers). Enjoy!
If you are a string theorist (or at least had some interest in it),
or if you are into Star Trek, check out Warren Siegel 's
homepage. (he is a Proffesor at YITP in Stony Brook)
