About

Update: As of September 2016, I'm working for Apple Inc.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science after being advised by Rodrigo Fonseca at Brown University. I also hold a Master's degree in Computer Science from Brown U (2011), a Master's degree in Information Science and Technology from the University of Tokyo (2009), and a B.S. degree in Computer Science from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil (2005).

I am primarily interested in operating systems and execution environments and how they can be better designed to fit user needs. My research focused on cross-layer instrumentation and profiling of application behavior and its energy consumption as it executes through a deep-layered software stack.

During my stint at Brown, I worked on lightweight tools to analyze and correlate measured power draw with the execution trace of mobile applications. I used this correlated data to identify energy hotspots and adapt the behavior of mobile software at runtime to improve battery longevity.
