Herman J. Mosquera Cuesta
Prof. Dr. Herman J. Mosquera Cuesta is Astrophysicist from Brazilian Center for Space Research (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais - INPE, 1998). Mainstream of research branches out to gravitational wave astrophysics, high energy (X-rays and gamma-ray bursts) astrophysics, relativistic (galactic and extragalactic) astrophysics, cosmology, alternative theories of gravity, and pondering the implications of nonlinear electrodynamics in gravitation, astrophysics and cosmology. As of nowadays, research interest has extended to astrodynamics in the solar system and exoplanetary science, in particular to study the general (including biology) conditions of habitability of exoplanets. As researcher has been associated to Instituto de Cosmologia, Relatividade e Astrofísica (ICRA-BR/Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas - CBPF/Rio de Janeiro), International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics Network (ICRANet/Pescara, Italy), and Institute for Theoretical Physics and High Mathematics Einstein-Galilei (IFM/Prato, Italy). Presently Professor at Universidade Estadual Vale do Acaraú (UVA/Sobral, Ceará State, Brazil) as Scientific Coordinator of Sobral Astro Project - Sobral Ville and General Relativity heading to 2015-2019.
