Dr. Sergio Freire has received Sergio Freire Degree in physics from the(Federal University of Minas Gerais. Currently he is working as Associate Professor of Physics at the university of the sciences.

Research Interest

The research is focused on two lines of investigation, including the development of platforms based on digital microfluidics for lab-on-a-chip applications, and the characterization of molecular motors, particularly using force microscopy. The activities involve undergraduate students, in a multidisciplinary environment.
