New Bredas Group Visiting Affliate, Heibbe de Oliveira
The Brédas Research Group would like to extend a warm welcome to their new Visiting Scholar, Heibbe de Oliveira!! Dr. de Oliveira is currently a Professor in the Institute of Chemistry at the University of Brasília (UnB). After completing his BS in Physics (2000) and his Msc in Atomic and Nuclear Physics (2003), he received his Ph.D in Chemistry (2008) from University of Brasilia, Brazil. Heibbe has more than ten years of experience in the field of Computational Chemistry. He has worked with "ab-initio" and density functional theory (DFT) studies of the electronic structure, electrical and optical properties of organic compounds, mechanisms of organic reactions, development of methodologies for electronic structure calculation, solution of the Nuclear Schrödinger Equation, Global Optimization using the GSA (Generalized Simulated Annealing) and deformed algebra. Let's welcome him to our group!!
