Research

I am a member of LASIGE.

My research focuses on Programming Languages, Parallel Programs and GPGPU, with Machine Learning and Evolutionary approaches as tools to improve them. My PhD thesis is titled “Automatic Optimization of Granularity Control Mechanisms for Parallel Programs”.

You can read more about my research, including the software produced. A list of publications is available on Google Scholar.

Talks and Workshops

Despite the academic job, I have been a freelance developer and I give talks and workshops frequently. Some of the topics include:

  • Programming languages (Python, Scala, Haskell)
  • Web programming (Django, REST APIs, OAuth)
  • Parallel and concurrent programming (Java ForkJoin, Futures, GPGPU)
  • Mobile apps (Android, iOS)
