I’m an Associate Professor (Professor Adjunto) at the Informatics and Statistics Department (INE) of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC). I’m also member of the Distributed Systems Research Laboratory (LAPESD) located at INE/UFSC.
I graduated from Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS) in Computer Science with honors (Summa Cum Laude) in 2006 and earned my Master’s degree in Computer Science from the same university in 2009. I then received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Grenoble in December 2012. From December 2012 to May 2013, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (LIG) in France. My research in France was supported by the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA). Then, from June 2013 to July 2014, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Informatics (INF) of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), working in the Parallel and Distributed Processing Group (GPPD).
My main research area is High Performance Computing, with focus on parallel programming models, thread and data affinity, high performance parallel applications and parallel and distributed computing on multicore and manycore architectures.
