Colleges, School and Institutes


My greatest inspiration has always been the ability to create and optimize. The opportunity to solve problems and break limitations through the automation of processes gave me the biggest smiles and some headaches.

Since my graduation, as a people management director at a junior company that I helped found, until today as a lecturer and researcher, I have the opportunity to create and optimize home and industrial automation processes, in addition to guiding and supervising students to achieve their projects.

In the last few years, I had the pleasure of spreading knowledge to undergraduate and graduate students, of developing electronic prototypes and embedded systems, and, mainly, of seeing the birth of great professionals. Today, as a researcher, it is gratifying to go beyond the current limits and navigate through new ideas and the challenges of making them real.

Among my teaching and research experiences in the area of ​​Digital and Embedded Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Reconfigurable Computing (FPGA), Robotics, Automation, and Internet of Things, I am always on the lookout for new ideas that may arise around me.
