Research Intern
Brazil Research Lab, Brazil



I'm a PhD Candidate in Informatics at PUC-Rio and the main focus of my research has been multimedia systems. I've also interest in the following fields: reactive/synchronous systems, programming languages and security.

I'm a staff member of the TeleMídia Lab. This laboratory has led the development of the Brazilian Middleware for Digital TV called Ginga, which was adopted as ISDB-Tb standard for terrestrial TV and also has become ITU-T standard for IPTV services.

I've joined IBM Research in June 2016, where I've been investigating how to integrate multimedia/hypermedia and cognitive systems. I'm also exploring novel approaches for representing knowledge and reasoning, conceptual modeling, document engineering for developing knowledge-based systems.
