Eduardo Bonini Guedes joins SOIS as postdoc
24.11.17 - It is with great pleasure that we welcome Eduardo to the group. He will be working on spin effects in transition metal oxides and other novel materials.
Eduardo finished his PhD at Universidade Federal do Paraná, Curitiba, in Brazil. His research focussed on the study of the electronic structure of transition metal oxides, mainly ruthenium perovskites (SrRuO3, SrRu2O4 and Sr2YRuO6), by combining XPS, resonant XPS, and X-ray absorption, and interpreting the results with DFT and Hamiltonian models. At SOIS he will use this expertise to understand spin effects in photoemission from transition metal oxides and related systems. Eduardo will be mostly working at the Swiss Light Source at the PSI, using our COPHEE end-station.
Contrary to what is expected from a Brazilian, Eduardo doesn't like football and he doesn't dance samba (althogh he likes the music). In his private time he is a music and tv series addict, and used to play the drums and other percussion instruments as a teenager. Besides enjoying the chocolate and fondue here in Switzerland he hopes to be back at playing drums it as soon as possible.
