I'm an associate professor at the Informatics Department (DAINF) of the Federal University of Technology - Parana (UTFPR) at Curitiba. I supervise master and doctorate projects at the Graduate Program on Applied Computing (PPGCA) and the Graduate Program on Electrical Engineering and Industrial Informatics (CPGEI).
I've received my Ph.D. in Computer Science by a bi-national cooperation between Brazil and Germany at the following institutions:
In 2009, my Ph.D. work was selected as finalist in the Best Thesis Award of the Brazilian Computer Science Society.
In 2018, I got a productivity research grant (in Portugues, Bolsa de Produtividade em Pesquisa) from Fundação Araucária de Apoio ao Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico do Estado do Paraná (FAPPR).
From Oct. 2021 to Nov. 2022, I was visiting researcher fellow with the Computer Science Department of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (Germany).
My research interests are mainly focused on the area of embbeded real-time systems and also cyber-physical systems, covering the whole design of such systems from specification until the implementation and verification of system's software and hardware components.
I'm the head of the Computing Systems Engineering Lab (LESC, in portuguese, Laboratório de Engenharia de Sistemas Computacionais). I'm also a member of the following research groups:
In addition, I've been collaborating with the following research groups:
The results of my research have been published in a book and more than 60 papers in national and international scientific events and journals (see here).
