I am a senior member of technical staff at the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES). The development of the local Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry and the assessment of its social and economic impacts were among my duties. I am now away from BNDES in a work assignment at the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE).

Academic Background

I have a PhD degree in Computer Science, obtained in 1999 at the Department of Computing of Imperial College, London; a MSc degree in Informatics, obtained in 1994 at the Department of Informatics of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro; and a BMath degree with a major in Informatics obtained in 1992 at the Computer Science Department of the Federal University of Juiz de ForaI was a scholarship holder of the Brazilian National Research Council (CNPq) in my postgraduate studies and later on became a CNPq research fellow. I have been a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), since 2012, and a Distinguished Contributor of the IEEE Computer Society, since 2022.


My research focuses on Software Engineering (SE), Distributed Systems (DS) and Public Policies for ICT Industry Development (Pol-ICT). Regarding SE and DS, I have studied development processes (from requirement elicitation and design to implementation methods, techniques and tools) and application areas (programming languages, database systems etc). Concerning Pol-ICT, I have studied, developed and applied technology transfer, financing and digital transformation methods.
