Academic Background

I attended the University of Brasilia where I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical/Electronics Engineering. After working in the industry for a couple of years, I joined the State University of Campinas, UNICAMP, also in Brazil. There I completed a master's in the same field. Since then, I have been pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at UC Davis. I am working under the guidance of Profs. Felix Wu and Karl Levitt.
