LGC I did my studies in Brazil, and between the ages of 14 and 17 I attended a high school that was bonded to a technological university. I was being taught by the same professors who were teaching engineering at the university. Although I had to do all the other subjects as well, like history and Portuguese (because in Brazil you have to study all the subjects before going to university), the school was mainly focused on science, and I was so inspired by this environment.
LGC When I was at high school, I had a great professor in physics. He was so passionate and made us understand how we could apply physics to our everyday lives. I therefore decided to study physics, and did my Bachelor’s degree and Masters at the University of Londrina, in the state of Parana in the south of Brazil. After that, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do a PhD or if I wanted to find a job in industry. But I heard about some fellowships available to fund PhDs, and I applied for one to research batteries in Germany. I was so happy when I got the fellowship and went to Germany to start my PhD.
