Carolina Brito

Biographical Information:

Carolina Brito obtained her M.Sc.and Ph.D degrees in the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (IF-UFRGS), Brazil. She did a post-doc in CEA-Saclay, and at the University of Leiden. Since 2010 she is professor at the IF-UFRGS. Her work is divided between the three pillars: teaching, research and scientific outreach. I teach subjects for engineering and physics courses. I do research in mechanical statistics, with an emphasis on complex systems, amorphous materials and superhydrophobic surfaces. In recent years, her research has expanded to a biophysical field by applying concepts of disordered materials to understand some properties of proteins. She was a member of the Statistical Physics Commission (C3) of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) from 2019 to 2021.
