Caio Vaz Rimoli


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Física de São Carlos (IFSC)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Received his Bachelor's Degree in Physical and Biomolecular Sciences (2012) and his Master's Degree in Applied Physics: Biomolecular Physics (2015) from the University of São Paulo (IFSC/USP), Brazil. He holds a Ph.D. degree from Institut Fresnel, at Aix-Marseille Université (France, 2020). Currently, he has a postdoctoral researcher position at the Laboratoire Kastler Brossel, a joint research institution from École Normale Supérieure (ENS/PSL) and Sorbonne University, in Paris, France. He has experience in optical intrumentation and optical experiments applied to biomolecular systems. Within this context, he has experience in polarized fluorescence microscopy (confocal, spinning-disk, wide-field, TIRF, and single-molecule and super-resolution STORM), and in spectroscopic techniques such as for chemical characterization of biological interfaces (SFG nonlinear vibrational spectroscopy) and spectroscopic technique for investigating the ultrafast dynamics of excited state spectra of bioinspired polymeric nanofilms (fs-Pump-probe spectroscopy). During his PhD, he developed a novel polarized fluorescence single-molecule and super-resolution technique called 4polar-STORM. Such technique has proved to open new avenues for quantitative studies of the organization of biomolecular structures like actin filaments and their supramolecular architectures in native or cancer cells. Moreover, he also has experience in many different biomimetic sample preparation procedures (bionanotecnology), like synthesis of self-assembled organic nanofilms, synthesis of in vitro cell membrane models (techniques: LbL, spin coating, polymeric inj jet printing, and Langmuir technology), and experience on typical sample preparation protocols for biological imaging using fluorescente markers (cell culture, cell fixation and fluorescente labelling protocols of U2OS human cancer cells). Finally, his current interest is in the field of endoscopy applied to neuroscience. His current postdoc project aims at measuring the activity of small neuronal clusters in freely-moving rodents using an optical endoscope together with deep imaging algorithms for investigating complex & scattering media.
