Tiago is an Invited Assistant Professor at the Physics Department of Instituto Superior Técnico and a Researcher at the Institute for Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion in Lisbon, Portugal. His research activities are related to the modeling and experimental characterization of non-equilibrium kinetics of low-temperature molecular plasmas. During his Fulbright grant, he will visit the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to explore the potential of plasmas for the reforming of CO2 and the production of oxygen in the Martian environment.
