About me

Hello, dear visitor!

Welcome to my home page.

I am currently on leave from my activities at the Federal Institute of Alagoas, Campus Arapiraca to pursue my Ph.D. at the University of Coimbra (CISUC-DEI-FCTUC). I am working under the guidance of Professor Marco Vieira.

I received my M.Sc in Computer Science from the Federal University of Pernambuco. My advisor was Prof. Paulo Maciel. My dissertation is about availability models for cloud computing environments with VM Live Migration technique as support for software rejuvenation.

I received my B.Sc in Computer Science from the Federal University of Alagoas, under the guidance of Prof. Marcelo Oliveira. At that time, I worked on building and managing an OpenNebula private cloud to host medical imaging-related applications.
