Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering

March 2017

Bachelor Degree in Science and Technology

December 2015

Technician in Computer Networks

December 2012

Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte

It was at UFRN where I really got involved with high quality research in several fields of engineering. Firstly, I began developing research in the Laboratory of Automation and Control Engineering for Petroleum where I helped to develop automation systems applied to the oil and gas industry, focused on onshore oil production. My main contributions there were related to systems modeling using PLCs and controllers as well as developing supervisory and control tools with MATLAB and C++.

I then moved on to the aerospace industry where I developed control systems for UAVs in an joint partnership between the Brazilian Air Force and the UFRN. This research resulted in the article Embedded Hardware Architecture for Recoverable and Ejectable Loads for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles published in the VI Forum of Innovation and Research of the CLBI in November of 2016. This work resulted not only in an final product but also a recommendation from a well-known professor in the field of embedded electronics and mechatronics.

Finally, during my final year at UFRN I developed research on computer networks and embedded systems by designing an embedded hardware architecture and a multiplatform software capable of monitoring and controlling a data center environment. As a result, I published the paper Embedded Real-Time Environment Control System for Data Centers in the XXIII CIENTEC 2017.

Award: Medal of Academic Merit as the student with the highest grades among all Computer Engineering students - GPA 9.0/10.0. See credential (in Portuguese).

I also did an internship at the Ontario Power Generation - Bioenergy Research Center, in Thunder Bay, Ontario. All these works resulted in several recommendations by both Canadian professors and engineers.

Award: Recognition of Achievement - GPA 3.9/4.0.

High School

December 2010

Sistema Colégio e Curso

Since I was a kid I loved electronics and math! During my school years, I always questined my professors so I could learn even more about physics, chemistry, math, biology and history. My devotion to research can be seen in a project I made back in 2008 when I was 14 years old for a science fair in my school regarding wind energy, where I developed a fully working model of a wind farm. This project won as the best work presented at the time.
