As a Mathematical Physicist, Prof Ferreira has the natural enthusiasm for modelling the physical world in mathematical terms and this is reflected both in his research and in his teaching philosophy. Some of his recent achievements are in contributing to the understanding of mechanical, electronic and magnetic properties of carbon nanostructures. Dr Ferreira is a Fellow of Trinity College Dublin,has an extensive publication list in high impact-factor peer-reviewed journals and maintains a network of collaborations with scientists worldwide.
Prof. Mauro Ferreira is a Lecturer in the School of Physics. He graduated from Universidade Federal Fluminense in his home country, Brazil, where he obtained a BSc (1991) in Physics and a MSc in Solid State Physics (1993). His PhD in Mathematical Physics (1998) was awarded by the Imperial College, in the UK, followed by postdoctoral research at the Applied Physics Department of Delft University of Technology, in Holland. Dr Ferreira joined the staff of the School of Physics in Trinity College in 2002, where he now conducts research focused on the central theme of physical properties of nanostructures.
