Vinícius Duarte obtained his Ph. D. in 2017 from the University of São Paulo, with thesis work performed at PPPL with the supervision of Nikolai Gorelenkov.

Vinícius Duarte's research is focused on the resonant interaction between fast ions and Alfvénic modes in tokamaks via numerical and analytical modeling. His current research interests include predicting the nature of nonlinear evolution of Alfvénic modes and modeling whole-device transport employing a quasi-linear approach.
