From 2018 to 2019 I was in a sabbatical year at Viena University of Economy and Business (WU) with the Institute for Information Business. From 2010 to 2011 I was a Visiting Scientist at the University of Grenoble at Grenoble Informatics Laboratory. Before, I was a visiting Scientist at the University of Ulm (2007-2009) with the Institute of Databases and Information Systems (DBIS). I received my Bachelor’s in Computer Science from the Universidade de Santa Cruz do Sul, Brazil (1999); my Master’s in Computer Science from Institute of Informatics – INF at Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul – UFRGS (2002); and my Ph.D. in Computer Science from UFRGS (2006). I developed part of my thesis research with the Institute for Parallel and Distributed Systems at the University of Stuttgart (2004-2005).
My main research interests are in the area of Business Process Management (BPM) with a special focus on process model extraction from natural language text, process quality, process implementation, process visualization, healthcare process, process model adaptation, process mining, and education of BPM.
Related to these topics I have published more than 75 research papers. I have also been serving as a reviewer for many Journals and have been participating in several Program Committees. I was co-organizer of several events including the Latin American School of BPM 2015, Tutorial and Panel Section of the BPM Conference 2016, and the First Workshop on Business Process Management and Ontologies (BPMO 2016). In 2020 I am co-chair of the First Workshop on Academy Meets Industry in Information System Engineering (AMISE 20). I was guest editor of the Special Issue on Business Process Management, to be published in 2021 in the Revista de Informática Teórica e Aplicada (RITA). I am co-chair of the Second Workshop on Academy Meets Industry in Information System Engineering (AMISE 21).
