Antonio Augusto started his activities in research as an undergraduate student in physics, studying the modeling of dissipative quantum systems. As a masters student, Antonio undertook a thesis in theoretical physics devoted to the studies of the electromagnetic field confined in cavities with moving boundaries. His collaboration with the LHCb experiment at CERN began in 2005 when he obtained a Ph.D. position at the Centro Brasileiro des Pesquisas Fisicas in Rio de Janeiro, joining the local group involved in the construction the detector. In 2009, Antonio started a two-year INFN fellowship for foreign physicists at the "Sezione di Roma." His skills in physics together with the ability to deal with software and to develop specific analysis tools and methodologies were determinant for forming a close and effective working group. In 2015, he joined the LHCb group at the University of Cincinnati to work on the development of software for data analysis.
