Carlos Olarte

I'm professor at ECT UFRN, Natal (Brazil) and  CNPq Researcher (Bolsista de Produtividade em Pesquisa do CNPq - Nível 2, Ciências da Computação 2016-2019).
My research interests are logic, formal methods, concurrency theory and concurrent constraint programming. 

I'm also member of the AVISPA research group.
Here my CV in PDF and CNPq-lattes.
