Summary

Work with industry equipment automation for beamlines and accelerator in SLAC and the Brazilian synchrotron. Participated in international work to improve technical skills and to get useful contacts to the company. Developed important skills in software, mainly EPICS, CS-Studio, C, C++, Python, LabVIEW (including cRIO FPGA), Delphi and macro programming using SPEC. Some of the equipment that was automated are mass controllers, temperature controllers, motion controllers, CCD, and laser controllers.

Work experience

Jan 2017Present

Senior Control Systems Engineer

SLAC

Developed systems for beamline and accelerator using EPICS, C, and C++. Examples are the new Long Pulse Laser for the MEC (materials under extreme conditions) beamline and the migration of the accelerator bunch length and bunch charge measurement systems from VME to the ATCA + Linux RT architecture.

Researched new hardware and tools that could be useful to SLAC, writing result reports and doing presentations about the research. 

Collaborated with the EPICS community, improving software or proposing changes that could benefit SLAC and other labs around the world. 

Collaborated with departments around SLAC, solving challenging problems related to control systems.

Computer Engineer

LNLS -  Brazilian Synchrotron

Improved many beamlines systems, bringing speed to experiments, gains on beamline usability control, migration of legacy system to EPICS and integration of new equipment to the current system. Description of skills and responsibilities are the following:

  • Researched for industrial equipment to develop software and suggested hardware solutions to automate them with a computer, microcontrolled system or FPGA.
  • Developed software using EPICS, C, Python, LabVIEW and Delphi to automate the beamlines.
  • Developed knowledge in stepper motor, robotic arm, CCD detector, ionization chamber, photodiode using current to voltage transformation, digital inputs, and outputs, NI cRIO with Ethernet or Ethercat and temperature controller.
  • Maintained and improved personal and equipment protection system using Pepperl-Fuchs PLC and step 5 language. Built the entire protection system of two beamlines from scratch.
