Biography

I am a lecturer at C3 - Center for Computational Science, at FURG - Federal University of Rio Grande. Since March 2016, I am on leave for a Ph.D. at the Informatics Institute of UFRGS - Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul. I am working under the supervision of professors Marinho Barcellos and Marco Canini. I have a masters degree in Computer Science by UFRGS (2013), under the supervision of professor Claudio Geyer, and a bachelor degree in Computer Engineering by FURG (2010).


Research

My research interests lie at the crossroads of theory and practice, with focus on the Internet more precisely in the interconnection/peering and routing aspects. My current work aims to provide a framework to evolve the Internet interconnection ecosystem by allowing network operators to establish interconnection agreements in short time frames (instead of days or weeks). Such approach will improve the operators' responsiveness to the frequent changes in the Internet traffic dynamics. In the past, I have worked with fault tolerance in distributed architectures, more specifically on the MapReduce model.
