About me

I'm a third year PhD student at the Reliable Systems group at the University of Oslo, Norway, under the supervision of Martin Steffen and Olaf Owe.

Prior to moving to Norway, I was a student at the University of California, Santa Cruz, from where I received a Masters degree in Computer Science under Jim Whitehead's supervision.

Before returning to school at UC Santa Cruz, I worked in Silicon Valley for six years. I was an engineer in the Platform Architecture team at Apple Inc., and in the Larrabee GPGPU Post-Silicon Validation team at Intel.

I obtained combined BS/MS degrees in Computer Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), New York. I am originally from Vitória, ES, Brazil.
