I am an assistant professor at the Computer Science Department, University of Brasília and a member of the Software Productivity Group, led by Prof. Paulo Borba. During August 2018 and July 2019 I worked as a visiting researcher at the University of Paderborn (working under the supervision of Prof. Eric Bodden). My research focuses on understanding the common usage of programming language features, program transformations, software architecture and modularity, and software product lines.
I have B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from Federal University of Paraíba, respectively in João Pessoa and Campina Grande, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Federal University of Pernambuco, in Recife.
