I’m Roberta Duarte Pereira and I’m a physicist graduated at IFSC-USP. I just started my master’s degree in the Black Hole Group at IAG-USP under the supervision of Prof. Rodrigo Nemmen.
Since my childhood, one of my main passions in life is Astronomy, mainly Black Holes because they are so interesting and they always fascinated me. During my time in undergrad course, Computational Physics also called my attention. So I decided to connect both of my passions.
Recently, I started a project – under the supervision of Professor Rodrigo—in astrophysical simulations with deep learning. It’s a project that may bring some new insights about how we see numerical simulations nowadays and we could gain so much in this area!
I’m very happy and greatly motivated with this project and also for being in the Black Hole Group.
Roberta will work on applying machine learning and deep learning to numerical simulations of black holes, in collaboration with João Paulo Navarro from NVIDIA.
Welcome aboard, Roberta! We are glad you chose to come work in our group, and excited for the discoveries in the computational universe that will come from your project.
