Christiano J. S. de Matos was born in Rio de Janeiro on 28 October, 1975. He holds bachelor and master degrees in Physics issued by Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro – PUC-Rio – (1998 and 1999) and a PhD issued by Imperial College London/University of London (2004). He was a visiting researcher at ACREO, Stockholm (1999), and a post-doctoral fellow in the Physics Department at Universidade Federal de Pernambuco – UFPE (2004/2005). He is currently a Professor at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie, where he is one of the leaders of the Photonics Laboratory within MackGraphe and holds active international collaborations with world-class researchers.

Christiano’s current work focuses on the linear and nonlinear optical characterization and application of 2D materials and on nanophotonics for the development of sensors and photonic devices. His main contributions include some of the first Raman and nonlinear optical studies of black phosphorus, as well as a number of demonstrations in the area of photonics such as a random laser in an optical fiber, a chirped pulse amplification system using a hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber, and a supercontinuum source using a water-core photonic crystal fiber. He has, so far, published over 60 articles in peer-reviewed journals, presented over 120 papers in conferences, and filed 3 patents. Christiano holds a CNPq productivity grant (level 2), has an h-factor = 25 and over 1900 citations (according to Google Scholar) and was a New Focus/Bookham Student Award winner (Optical Society of America) in 2004.
