Adjunct Professor at Department of Computing of Pernambuco Federal Rural University (UFRPE), PhD-c at Informatics Centre of Pernambuco Federal University (UFPE), leader of Open Data Brazil Lab and member of Assert Lab.
Passionate about making things work and seeing running code, I'm a highly motivated software researcher and developer, having a strong computer science background and over twenty years of experience in software development, which has always been combined with high-level scientific research. Eager to keep learning, this combination of research and practice led me to gracefully transition from pioneering research on mobile technologies (with palmtops!) to a Master thesis on mainframe legacy code reengineering (Natural/ADABAS). More recently, my focus is on Artificial Intelligence, especially the use of Machine Learning for predicting elections based on Social Media data. Having a position as Adjunct Professor at Pernambuco Federal Rural University, some of my recent public deployed web projects focus on analyzing and republishing open government data in a way that ordinary people can understand. Although I'm been a bit far removed from traditional software companies for some years, I believe that close relations between the Academy and Industry are the best way to achieve great results.
