I am a Ph.D. student at the Computer Networks Group at the Institute of Informatics of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil. Currently, I'm a Visiting Graduate Student at CAIDA (Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis) in San Diego, California working under the supervision of Dr. Kimberly C. Claffy (+ Bradley Huffaker, Matthew Luckie). Previously, also on the academic background, I received my M.Sc. (UFRGS/2014) and B.Sc. (UNISC/2010) degrees, both in Computer Science. My Ph.D. advisor is Prof. Marinho Pilla Barcellos. In my research activities the problems that I tackle often involve the intersection of theory and practice with particular emphasis on large-scale networked systems.
I study problems in the Internet interconnections, global Internet routing, information control, and the performance of the networks infrastructure. My previous research experience was with network infrastructure planning and optimization inline within the Software-Defined Networking paradigm and, also with Peer-to-Peer systems focusing on monitoring the Torrent universe to pinpoint sharing of illegal files (e.g. child pornography) and copyrighted content (e.g. movies, software, music, books, games). As an Assistant Professor I taught classes that range from Computer Networks, Management of Computer Networks to Operating Systems and Web Applications Development. Before joining the academia, I was a developer and a team coordinator during 10+ years for the computer industry in Brazil.
