Welcome to Raul Abramo's webpage.

I am a professor of physics at the Physics Institute of the University of Sao Paulo (USP).  My research is focused on interface areas between physics and astronomy, in particular observational cosmology.

I have been recently involved in large projects in cosmology and astrophysics whose main goal is to search for evidences of dark energy, dark matter and the mechanisms behind the Universe's expansion and structure formation.

These projects are large-area, deep galaxy surveys that are mapping galaxies, quasars and supernovas in the observable Universe. These instruments rely on a new generation of telescopes and instruments capable of imaging large areas of the sky for cosmological studies.s.
