Faculty Member Profile

Jeroen Schoenmaker

Profile:I have a Ph.D in physics focusing on materials science and instrumentation. Prior to my professorship period, I studied and worked in 5 different institutions (in Brazil and abroad): Campinas State University (UNICAMP), University of São Paulo (USP), Université Paris Sud XI – France, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) – USA and Brazilian Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS). Presently I am a professor at Universidade Federal do ABC, a university that fosters interdisciplinary approach to science and education. My research now focuses on studies bridging philosophy of science, thermodynamics, energy, instrumentation and materials science. By applying a phenomenological approach to physical phenomena I proposed a model connecting entropy and gravity (not related to thermodynamics of horizons), identified a new thermodynamic cycle (Buoyancy Organic Rankine Cycle) and developed a new kind of magnetic device called Lenz lenses.
