short bio

I grew up in Curitiba, Paraná State in Southern Brazil.

I started the undergraduate course in Computer Science at Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) in Mar/2000. Between Dec/2003 and Jul/2003 I was scholarship holder supported by CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development), with the final report entitled ‘‘Randomness and Applications in Network Design’’, supervised by Prof. Dr. Jair Donadelli Jr. The undergraduate final work, entitled ‘‘An Introduction to Quantum Computing’’, presented in Feb/2004, was also supervised by Prof. Dr. Jair Donadelli Jr.

In Mar/2004, I started the MSc course in Computer Science at the Institute of Computing, UNICAMP. I have obtained my master’s degree in Mar/2006, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Flávio Keidi Miyazawa, with the dissertation entitled ‘‘Approximation and Cost Sharing in Network Design’’. During this period I was supported by CNPq.

In Mar/2006, I started the Ph.D. in Computer Science, also at the Institute of Computing, UNICAMP. I have worked under the supervision of Professor. Dr. Flavio Keidi Miyazawa, supported by CNPq. The thesis was ‘‘Convergence Time to Nash Equilibrium in Bin Packing and Load Balancing Games’’. I finished the Ph.D. in Mar/2010.

In Oct/2009, I was temporary teacher at UTFPR. I remained in this position until the end of 2010.

In Fev/2011, I was admitted as associate professor at UFPR. On 2015 and 2016, I assumed the position of course coordinator of Computer Science. At UFPR, I taught the following courses (more info on the main page):

  • Discrete Mathematics
  • Algorithm Analysis
  • Algorithms and Data Structures I
  • Algorithms and Data Structures II
  • Social and Economic Networks
  • Randomized Algorithms
  • Great Ideas in Theoretical Computer Science
