I'm an adjunct professor at the Federal University of Technology - Paraná (UTFPR), Brazil. I held my Ph.D. in Software Engineering/Distributed Systems at the IMT Atlantique, France, as a member of the AtlanModels team. I'm currently focused on postdoctoral research in robotics software with the S2 Team, at VU Amsterdam. My research interest lays in empirical software engineering, software engineering practice, and distributed systems. I'm alway open to collaboration...

Research Interest

Main Topics (but not only)

  • Empirical Software Engineering
  • Software Engineering Practice
  • Distributed Software Architectures
  • Robotics and Internet of Things Systems

Software Engineering

We're modernizing this. The plan is to split it into multiple credits. For now, I'm teaching generic SE, with a focus on software construction and validation.

Introduction to Programming Languages

I teach first period students how and why to use programming languages. Usually, I mix Scratch (logic), C (Hello, world!), and Arduino (sensitive case study).

Distributed Applications

Basics of distributed systems, and case study projects. Java is the main language here (threads, concurrency, synchronization, etc.), with some work on Spring framework. The course also presents some advanced aspects, such as frontend and backend separations, application framework (Spring), REST, RPC and messaging protocols (MQTT, WebSockets, etc.). At the end of the course, the students must deliver their own distributed application.
