Pedro Estrela visits Ribeirao Preto

📥  visits

Pedro Estrela visited the University of São Paulo (USP) as part of an exchange scheme funded by the University of Bath and FAPESP (SPRINT programme).

The visit to the campus in Ribeirão Preto was very useful to interact with the members of the group of Prof Mulato as well as visit the facilities and learn about the spread of research being done at USP Ribeirão Preto.

The visit was followed by attendance at the Brazilian Materials Research Society conference in Campinas where Dr Estrela had an invited talk. The conference enabled to establish further links with Brazilian researchers which can lead to future collaborations.
