Sonho impossível (Impossible Dream)

 Together with my wife, family, friends and many other supporters and mentors, I persued my Sonho impossível (Impossible Dream).

I almost gave up many times, but, it finally became reality.

As most of you know, I became a Doctor (PhD) on 08 Feb / 2023, and some days ago, on January, 26, 2024, I had my Official Ceremony (Investidura de nuevos doctores / Acto Académico de Santo Tomás de Aquino)

Sonho impossível — “Investidura de nuevos doctores” / Acto Académico de Santo Tomás de Aquino — Madrid — 26.01.2024 — Dr. Caio Fernandes Moreno

The great Maria Bethânia sings “Sonho Impossível / Impossible Dream” 

“Sonhar mais um sonho impossível
Lutar quando é fácil ceder
Vencer o inimigo invencível
Negar quando a regra é vender

Sofrer a tortura implacável
Romper a incabível prisão
Voar num limite improvável
Tocar o inacessível chão”

“Dream one more impossible dream,
struggle when it is easier to give in.
Win the unbeatable enemy,
deny when the rule is to sell.

Suffer the relentless torture,
break up the unreasonable prison
Fly over an unlikely limit,
touch the inaccessible ground.

I became a Doctor (PhD)

Luke 1:37

“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

Thank you Heavenly Father !!! Obrigado!!! Gracias !!!

With love,

Dr. Caio Fernandes Moreno

I finished my PhD


This month (February 2023) is very special for me and my family, as some people already know I achieved one of the biggest dreams of my life, I finished my PhD.

I am now officially Doctor Caio Moreno.

I defended my PhD Thesis on 08/02/2023 in Madrid, Spain.

Thank you very much to Prof. Dr. Ramón Alberto Carrasco, Prof. Dr. Cristóbal Pareja Flores, Prof. Dr. Loren Escot, Prof. Dr. Alicia Pérez Alonso, Prof. Dr. Gema Fernández-Avilés , Prof. Dr. Diogo Ferreira and Prof. Dr. Francisco Chiclana Parrilla.

It took me some days to process this achievement and what this means to me and my family; in the first days I preferred to stay quiet and reflect about what had just happened and enjoy it with my wife and kids.

Now, I would like to officially share this special news with you.

I want to say a huge thank you to my thesis director Prof. Dr. Ramón Alberto Carrasco.

Huge thank you to my manager Stephan Hufnagl for all the support.

I also want to say a huge thank you to all the people who helped me during all my time as a PhD Student at Complutense University of Madrid.

What a ride, I cannot believe it is finished.
