Vitor Barroso Silveira

In my PhD, I aim to experimentally verify the effective field theories that simulate Black Holes and the early Universe using fluid systems. With other team members, I have been investigating the physical and rheological properties of two-fluid systems and developing high-precision optical sensors for measuring classical and quantum fluid interfaces. I am interested in the industrial and technological applications that result from fundamental physics experiments.
