Carla Rodrigues Almeida

Physicist - Historian of Science 

Hello there.

Welcome to my home page. I am a Brazilian interdisciplinary researcher with a Master’s degree in Mathematics, a Ph.D. in Physics, and post-doctoral training in the History of Science. My research interests are the History of 20th Century Physics, Quantum Cosmology, and Science Communication, but I am always open to learn and explore other disciplines and subjects. I’ll go to where my curiosity guides me, and I’d like to share the knowledge I gather with you.

Today, I am an independent researcher collaborating with the Research Group on Theory and History of Knowledge (Grupo de Teoria e História do Conhecimento - TeHCo). But you can track my previous academic positions below.
