Lauro Beltrão Costa

I finished my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of British Columbia and joined Google as Software Engineer. At Google, I worked in Cloud AI with Natural Language/Document AI team, previously I worked with Google AdX and DBM teams.


At UBC, my advisor was Matei Ripeanu, and I worked in the NetSysLab. My research focused on automating the configuration of intermediate storage systems. I was also involved in the Totem project (Graph Processing in Hybrid Architectures).

During the summers of 2009, 2010, and 2013 I had a great time at Google as an intern for the Site Reliability Engineering team for ContentAds (2009), and as Software Engineer intern for the Resource Management (2010), and the Google Feedback (2013) in Mountain View, CA, USA.

Before starting at UBC, I worked at the LSD (Distributed Systems Lab) of UFCG (Universidade Federal de Campina Grande) in Brazil where I worked as software engineer and assistant researcher (2006-2008), and I concluded my BSc (2003) and MSc studies (2005) contributing to OurGrid project. As part of my research in OurGrid, I undertook an internship at Hewlett Packard Labs in Palo Alto, CA, USA. In 2008, I was also an intern at Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern, Germany contributing to their Jawari project for three months.
