Welcome to my home page! I am an Assistant Professor (since 2017) at the Institute of Informatics (INF) of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). I hold a Ph.D. degree from UFRGS (2014).

I am also member of the Postgraduate Program in Computing (PPGC) at UFRGS (CAPES 7), and Brazil CNPq Research Fellow (PQ-2). My curriculum vitae (lattes) can be found at http://lattes.cnpq.br/0458322041606755

My research is broadly focused in the field of networking. I’m currently interested on the following topics: community networks (how to bridge the digital divide, and design low-end devices for networking in the Amazon region); blockchain (secure transaction verification); software defined networking (measurement and monitoring, security);¬†programmable forwarding planes (programmable switch virtualization, data plane monitoring, verification of forwarding plane software);¬†network function virtualization (placement and chaining of virtual functions).

I recently began working with machine learning applied to public health (design of smartphone apps for tracking down mosquitoes) and e-commerce (unveiling users behind shared accounts). I’m also working with fault tolerant large in scale experiments. Finally, I have an interest on algorithm analysis and design, and software engineering.
