Carlos Mafra joined the University in June 2016, as a Royal Society University Research Fellow. He completed his PhD studies in São Paulo, Brazil in 2008.
He moved to Potsdam, Germany for the next 3 years to work as a postdoc at the Albert Einstein Institute of Gravitational Physics. In October 2011 he started a postdoc position at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in Cambridge, to work in the string-theory group of Michael Green (the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the time).
After a one-year research position at the Institute of Advanced Study, in Princeton USA, he moved to the University of Southampton, where he is happily to this day.
