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.
