Lecturer in Physics. Dr de Moura holds a PhD in Physics from Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brazil.

Dr Moura has a background in dynamical systems and statistical physics. His research interests in these areas include transient chaos, nonhyperbolic chaotic scattering, and chaotic advection of flows. Since moving to Aberdeen, he has been applying physics and mathematics to understand fundamental biological processes, in collaborations with biologists in Aberdeen and elsewhere. Biological problems he is actively working on include: mathematical modelling of DNA replication, dynamics and regulation of protein synthesis in uni-cellular organisms, modelling the responses of pathogenic fungi species to combinations of stresses, homeostasis of bacteria, macromolecular dynamics in cellular membranes.
