About Me

I'm Ph.D. Student at the University of California Santa Cruz, USA, co-advised by professors Dr. Scott Beamer and Dr. Tyler Sorensen. My research focus on HPC graph-related problems, where now we are investigating the application of graph algorithms in a DNA Mapping application. I received my Master in Computer Science from UFRGS, in Brazil, where I was advised by Prof. Dr. Lucas Mello Schnorr and worked on the Parallel and Distributed Processing Group. I received my Bachelor in Computer Science from the Universidade Regional Integrada, also in Brazil. My research interests are related to improving parallel applications regarding distribution, scaling, and load balancing. I am also enthusiastic about graph-related problems. I love programming and solving logical puzzles (and trying to do lettering art)!
