Mário D. Cunha received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Madeira, Madeira, Portugal, in 2004. His thesis focuses on the modelling of the plasma-cathode interaction in high-pressure arc discharges.
He is Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, University of Madeira.
His current research interests include numerical simulation of different modes of current transfer to cathodes of high-pressure arc discharges, and also spots on vacuum arc cathodes.
