I'm a Research Staff Member in the Data-Intensive Systems and Analytics group at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. I graduated with a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010. At UIUC, I studied with Prof. Ravi Iyer in the DEPEND group. Prior to that, I got my Master's degree at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and my Bachelor's degree at Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, both in Brazil.
My main interests are in fault tolerance, software dependability evaluation, stream processing systems, distributed systems, and operating systems.
