I graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Later I have also obtained MSc and DSc degrees from COPPE — System Engineering and Computer Science Program in the year of 1991 and 2000, respectively. I used to work by Cobra - Brazilian Computers from 1984 to 1986 in the development of parallel computers. I also worked as researcher in the area of Computer Architecture by NCE-UFRJ until 2006. During this period I worked with some parallel computers projects, such as Pegasus, Multiplus and NCP II, the last one developed at COPPE/Sistemas.
I am currently professor and former head of department at the Department of Computer Science from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. I also worked as Information Technology Director (CIO) at UFRJ from 2011 until 2015. My area of research are Operating Systems and Computer Architecture in the following topics: computer architecture, microprocessor architecture and high performance computing. If you want to know more details about my career (like publications and so on) please check my resume by CNPq.
I am also the coordinator of the project Netuno, an HPC cluster installed at NCE/UFRJ that was ranked on Top500 in the 138th place. Netuno is equipped with 256 nodes, each one with two quad-core processors, 16 GB of memory and an Infiniband HCA board. This performs a total of 2048 processors and 4 TB of memory, with a sustained Linpack performance of 16.2 GFlops.
