I'm a master's candidate in Mechatronics at Federal University of Bahia (UFBA). I'm a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) researcher, more specifically researching at localized algorithms for WSN. I'm working with topology control algorithms for WSNs and my work is supported by the Brazilian Federal Funding Agency (CAPES).

At the Distributed Systems Specialization I worked with Medium Access Control Algorithms for WSN.

At Prodeb's company I worked with PHP using agile development methodologies and MVC frameworks.

In the past my scientific initiation was in Fault-Tolerance and Quality of Service, focusing on QoS monitoring through SNMP protocol and Real-Time Operating System.


My specialties (and interests)  are:

  • Algorithm design and analysis.
  • Distributed and localized algorithms.
  • Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs).
  • Medium Access Control for WSNs.
  • Topology Control.
  • Graph algorithms.


I don't have a personal web page yet but you can see my publications at my LinkedIn.
