    About

    Ruy Alberto Pisani Altafim was born in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brazil in 1982. He received the B.Sc. degree from the Computer Science and Mathematical Institute (ICMC), University of São Paulo (USP), in 2003. He worked with simplex method in his graduation project developing software to improve food distribution for cattle.Received his M.Sc degree in electrical engineering from University of São Paulo working on the development of measurement systens for piezoelectric devices such ferro- an piezoelectrets. Since 2006 the researcher is working on his PhD also in electrical engineering developing new piezoelectric structures made from polymer films. In 2008 he work for one year at the Applied Condensed Matter Physics department at University of Potsdam, Germany developing new ferroelectret structures.
