I am a PhD student in EECS at MIT, working with Prof. Sam Madden and Prof. Julian Shun at MIT's Data Systems Group. My research interests revolve around performance aspects of data processing systems, primarily focusing on query optimization and performance techniques for large-scale graph data management. Before MIT I spent some time in industry as a software engineer, after completing an M.S. in CS from UIUC, and a B.S. in CS from UFRGS, in Brazil. I’m very fortunate to be supported by an Alfred P. Sloan UCEM PhD Fellowship, and a Microsoft Research PhD fellowship.

On the personal side, I’m originally from the south of Brazil, a big fan of horror comic books, indie films, and alternative R&B / funk / electronic music — in my first 2 years here I hosted a radio show every other week at MIT’s student radio. I also have a penchant for mechanical keyboards. Feel free to drop me a line if you’re a new graduate student at MIT and are considering joining our group!
