Welcome to my personal webpage!

This is my personal webpage under construction (maybe forever), here you will find some information about my personal and academic life.
The signature can be found here.

About me

I was born in Igarapé-Miri and raised in Barcarena, two cities of Pará in the north of Brazil. I have lived in Igarapé-Miri, Barcarena, Belém, São José dos Campos and Rome.
Here you can find my photos around of the world.
I am a theoretical physicist with interest in nuclear and relativistic astrophysics, gravitation and cosmology, my research focuses on the theoretical exploration of the properties of strongly interacting matter at ultra-high densities and temperatures, structure and evolution of compact stars (white dwarfs, neutron stars, pulsars, magnetars, quarks stars, black holes), supernovae, wormholes, emission mechanisms (electromagnetic and gravitational) of white dwarfs and neutron stars, ultrastrong electromagnetic fields (production of X and gamma rays), cosmic rays, higher-dimensional and alternatives theories of gravity.​ More information about my academic life you can find in my Researchgate, Curriculum Vitae or Currículo Lattes (in Portuguese).
I use GNU/Linux since 2009, starting with Mandriva LinuxUbuntuSlackwareDebian, and since 2014 I am using Arch Linux, remaining up to now due its principles. Here a list of the packages that I use.

Here you can find my personal blog (Portuguese) where I stole some ideas ;-p

About our importance, politics and philosophy

About our importance in the Universe: "On the scale of worlds, humans are inconsequential, a thin film of life on an obscure and solitary lump of rock and metal." Carl Sagan, speech at Cornell University, October 13, 1994
About politics, I agree with this phrase of Enéas Carneiro who said: "Because a whole image has been created - it is the image of the streets, it is not the image of the press, it is the image in the streets - an aversion to politics. We look at and say "easy life person." And when we send the whole process, we see that, in most cases, the overwhelming majority of times, the subject comes close to taking advantage." and with this quote "A dispute of Interests masked as a contest of principles. Conducting public affairs to private advantage."
I maintain broad interests in philosophy, I advocate the Stoicism, a school of Hellenistic philosophy that flourished throughout the Roman and Greek. I also follow theses: Philosophy of the GNU Project, Eric's Random Writings, Voltaire and the great speech that I heard is that.

I am against SPAM (“Unsolicited Commercial Email”, UCE; and/or “Unsolicited Bulk Email”, UBE) (you can use a computer program for e-mail spam filtering) and support widespread use of strong cryptography for privacy, and encourage you to use GnuPG encryption with this key (GnuPG 4096 RSAv2 key: UID: 0x7E8BF5C5 - Fingerprint: 0EDF0C53F7399B5F254EB3F94B3854817E8BF5C5) when sending me messages. You can send me a message in an end-to-end encrypted chat on Keybase, there you will find my identity proofs. I also highly recomend Signal and Riot/Matrix, as well as Jami for communication systems.
