If a little knowledge is dangerous, where is the man
who has so much as to be out of danger?

(Thomas Henry Huxley, 1877)

Here you should find a reasonably updated list of my main publications.  Click here for my CV and here for my Google Scholar profile.  My PhD Thesis and my MSc Thesis may also be found online.

I currently act as a supervisor both at the Graduate Studies in Systems and Computing (research area: Foundations of Computer Science) of UFRN and the Graduate Program in Philosophy of UFRN (concentration area: Logic and Formal Philosophy).  I also coordinate the CNPq research group Lo.L.I.T.A. (the acronym obviously stands for Logic, Language, Information, Theory and Applications).  In 2009-10 I spent my first sabbatical period visiting the Theory and Logic Group of TU-Wien, and in 2017 I spent my second sabbatical period visiting the Group on Logic and Epistemology of RUB, as a recipient of the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award, in the field of Theoretical Philosophy.
