I got my PhD in 2008 at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of the University of Cambridge, where I worked under the supervision of Prof. E.J. Hinch,
trying to understand instabilities in fluidised beds. While in Cambridge, I was a member of Churchill
College and I was fully supported by the Ministry of Education of Brazil, through the agency CAPES. You can find me at y.d.sobral ./at/. mat.unb.br .
Previously, I took my B.Sc. (1996-2001) and M.Sc. (2002-2004) at the Universidade de Brasília,
