Gustavo Morari Do Nascimento
Dr. Gustavo Morari do Nascimento has a position as professor at Federal University of ABC. It has strong experience in many fields related to characterization of nanomaterials by using spectroscopic techniques associated to microscopic resolution. It obtained a doctoral degree from University of São Paulo (USP) on 2004 writing a thesis about spectroscopic characterization of nanocomposites formed by conducting polymers and clays. Afterwards, it spent on 2007/2008 a post-doctoral degree at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the resonance Raman study of double-walled carbon nanotubes doped with halogens under guidance of the legendary Mildred S. Dresselhaus. Back to Brazil, it has spent three years (2009-2011) at Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) working with synthesis of nanostructured carbon modified with molecular magnets. Nowadays, his research focus is on molecular characterization of modified carbon nanostructured materials and polymer nanocomposites by using different spectroscopic techniques. Resonance Raman and SERS (surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy) coupled to microscopy techniques added to X-ray absorption techniques at National Synchrotron Light Laboratory have been the main techniques employed in the investigation.
