Supervisor: Dr Asaph Widmer-Cooper

Qualifications:
MSc Chemistry, Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil (2016)
BSc Physics, Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil (2016)
BSc Industrial Chemistry, Federal University of Santa Maria, Brazil (2012)

Research themes: Excitonic Systems for Solar Energy Conversion

Debora uses molecular dynamics simulations to study the interaction between nanoparticles and how it depends on factors such as the ligand type, the particle size, the core and solvent nature, and the temperature. She aims to gain insight into the self-assembly of passivated colloidal nanoparticles, what will contribute to our fundamental understanding of exciton dynamics in these systems.
