Curriculum Vitae

Last update: September 5, 2020

Nelson Faustino, portuguese born mathematician, obtained his Ph.D. degree at University of Aveiro, Portugal, in 2009. He spent six (6) years as Post-Doc researcher at University of Coimbra, Portugal (2010-2013), and State University of Campinas, Brazil (2013-2016). From March 2016 till March 2020 he was Visiting Professor at Federal University of ABC (UFABC), Brazil. Since September 2020 he’s Invited Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Faculty of Economics, University of Coimbra.
During his post-doc position, funded by São Paulo Research Foundation, Faustino turned again his attention to the research field of his PhD studies but from a mathematical physics perspective.
Since Faustino’s move to Brazil, he authored eleven (11) manuscripts of which eight (8) are published in international journals, two (2) in conference proceedings, one (1) book chapter  (almost all as a sole author).
In his publication list over the period 2015-2019 includes a list of interesting contributions, including a novel proof for the so-called Coburn’s conjecture in the field of operator theory — jointly with L.D. Abreu (2015)– the development of a framework on the crossroads of Sturm-Liouville systems and Bayesian Statistics (2017) and a contribution to the Cauchy-Kovalevskaya extension in the framework of discrete Dirac operators (2019).
As a whole, his research interests encompass a diversity of research topics such as harmonic analysis, hypercomplex analysis, numerical analysis and mathematical physics. And due to his outstanding contributions in the fields of Applied and Computational Mathematics, he received from the European Society of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering (ESCMSE) an ‘Honorary Fellowship‘ during his participation on the ICNAAM 2017 meeting in Thessaloniki, Greece, as plenary speaker.
Despite of his teaching duties at UFABC, Faustino has been committed on the organization of scientific meetings and on the training of students on research activities. From the period 2018-2019 he organized (jointly with Klaus Guerlebeck from Weimar-Germany and Rolf Soeren Krausshar from Erfurt-Germany) the “14-th Symposium Clifford Analysis and Applications” (2018) & the “15-th Symposium Clifford Analysis and Applications” (2019) on the “International Conference on Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics“ (ICNAAM); in UFABC he had organized the “Symposium on Clifford Algebras, Mathematical Physics and Related Topics“. Also he was on jury on two (2) PhD defenses and supervised two (2) young studends through the “Researcher Program from Day One” hosted at UFABC.
