About my research: My main research areas are the theory of gravitation and cosmology. In gravitation, my interest resides in the study of the motion of particles (neutral and electrically charged) across different space-times, putting special attention on the classical tests of the general relativity to compare it with availables observational data. In cosmology, I focus on the study of the dynamic behavior of the universe at different epochs, especially in the inflationary era and the accelerated expansion regimen, using alternative models which are tested using the most current data available.
