I am a first year PhD student in EECS at MIT, working with Prof. Sam Madden at MIT's Database group. My research interests include performance aspects of distributed storage and data processing systems, as well as techniques for large-scale data discovery and cleaning.

Prior to MIT I was a software engineer at Google. Most of my time there I worked at a Storage Infrastructure team whose goal was to radically improve performance of some of Google's proprietary distributed storage systems, including Bigtable, Colossus, and Blobstore. I also contributed to Google Drive, and to a confidential project that hasn't yet been released as of October 2016.

In a past life I obtained an M.S. in Computer Science from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a B.S. in Computer Science from UFRGS, Brazil. A full list of my publications and research projects is available in my CV.
