About me

I'm an associate professor with the Department of Computer Science (DCC) of UFJF and a full professor with the Graduate Program in Computer Science (PPGCC). I received my M.Sc. and D.Sc degrees in Computer Science from Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, in 2011 and 2016, respectively. I participated in several research projects funded by several agencies, such as RNP, FINEP, FAPERJ, TBE, FAPEMIG, PTI, FAPESP, and CNPq. In addition, I'm also a head researcher at the UFJF NetLab Laboratory and a member of the IEEE and SBC Societies. I have a long time of experience in Computer Science, emphasizing Computer Networks and Cybersecurity.
