Dr. Eduardo Bringa


Eduardo Bringa studied physics for 2 years at the "Universidad Nacional de San Luis", before moving to the "Instituto Balseiro", in Bariloche, to obtain his "Licenciatura en Fisica" in December 1994, working on atomic physics with Nestor Arista. From August 1995 to September 2001 he was at the Univesity of Virginia (UVa), where he got a Ph.D. in Physics in May 2000, working on simulations of surface modification with R.E. Johnson. After graduation, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher with appointments in Astronomy and Materials Science and Engineering, focusing on astromaterials. He moved to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as a postdoctoral researcher, and he was transformed into staff member in 2003 and permanent staff member in 2007. At LLNL he focused on radiation damage, shock physics and laser-materials interactions.

During April 2008 he moved to Mendoza, Argentina, where he is currently an Independent Researcher for CONICET and Associate Professor at the "Instituto de Ciencias Basicas", "Universidad Nacional de Cuyo".

He is interested in modeling and simulations in general, and collaborates with groups around the world on solving problems from materials science, astrophysics, biology, etc. Details on projects and publications can be found in the corresponding pages.
