Marcelo M. Amaral got his PhD in physics from UERJ at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2015 working with quantum field theory on the problem of confinement in Yang Mills theory. He then conducted postdoc work at Penn State University at State College US working on the problem of time in quantum gravity. Before earning his PhD, Marcelo worked in Brazil on different social projects with a focus in open knowledge and free software. He has experience and interest in quantum field theory and quantum gravity.
