1st Year

GSO Role: 1st Year Rep

Research Area: Computational Many Body Physics

Fun Facts: Her dream job as a child was to be a graphic designer. She is currently watching Malcolm in the Middle.

 Ana is from a small town in Brazil called Araraquara where they have a pretty significant orange juice factory, and as a consequence, the whole town smells like oranges. She studied for her BSc. only 40 min away from home, at the University of São Paulo. For her MSc., she moved to Cologne, in Germany, and absolutely loved her time there. Leaving Germany was not easy, but it helps that people in Durham are very kind, and that Downtown has a beautiful small town look at night.
