I was born in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais State, Brazil, in 1970. That is why I love to eat the delicious cheese bread mineiro. I am married to Ana and have a daughter and a son, Carolina and Thiago, from a previous marriage. More about my academic and professional life as a computer scientist can be found in my CV or in my Lattes CV.
My hobby is to read science fiction romances. I am also an amateur astronomer.
