About

Hello and welcome to my home page. I have recently finished my PhD at the Graduate Program in Computer Science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais. My advisor was Prof. Jussara Marques de Almeida.

My research interests are:

  • Data mining
  • Online user behavior
  • Social media
  • Information retrieval

In the past I have worked with:

  • Grid Computing (Ourgrid)
  • P2P Computing
  • Cloud Computing (we called it Utility Computing or Business Driven IT Management at the time)

These previous projects were mostly done at the Federal University of Campina Grande, where I did my BSc in Computer Science, and was a member of the Distributed Systems Laboratory.

Around the web you can find me on Github.
