Rui E. F. Silva

I am a postdoc researcher working on the ERC funded project MMUSCLES, under the supervision of Dr. Johannes Feist. 

In my PhD, I have done research on the field of Strong Field Physics, in particular, I was focused in strong field phenomena (photoionization and high harmonic generation) in diatomic molecules. More recently, I am interested in the process of high harmonic generation in solid targets and how electron-electron correlation affects this process.

My research interests are in the areas of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Computational Physics.
