Short Biography

I’m currently a Research Engineer at ASAP team at INRIA Rennes, where I am in charge of developing and evaluating a peer-to-peer version of an application called WhatsUp. WhatsUp is a news recommender system that organizes users into clusters and creates an implicit social network based on their explicit opinions.

I hold a PhD in Computer Science from Université de Rennes1 for a work performed at INRIA/IRISA under the supervision of Dr. Emmanuelle Anceaume, a Master Degree (MSc) in Applied Informatics from the Pontifical Catholic University (PUC-PR) in Brazil for a work performed at the Distributed Systems Group of PPGIA under the supervision of Dr. Lau Cheuk Lung, a Lato Sensu degree in Distributed Systems and Computer Networks, from the same university (PUC-PR) under supervision of Dr. Carlos Maziero, and an undergraduate degree of  Bachelor of Informatics (BSc) from Universidade Positivo in Brazil.

I have also spent few years in the industry in Brazil working for companies such that EMC², IBM, Positivo Informática, among others.

 

Research Interests

  • Large scale distributed systems;
  • Peer-to-peer networks;
  • Distributed data storage;
  • Recommendation systems;
  • Building/Evaluating experimental systems;

 

Projects

  • WhatsUp (a.k.a. Allyours): It is a news recommender system that organizes users into clusters and creates an implicit social network based on their explicit opinions. WhatsUp disseminates news items through a novel heterogeneous gossip protocol that biases the choice of its targets towards those with similar interests and amplifies dissemination based on the level of interest in every news item.
  • Gossiplib: It is a java library developed to simplify the effort of the devolopment and test of real-world and/or simulated gossip-based P2P applications.
  • Yalps: It is a java library created to help software engineers to quickly develop peer-to-peer applications. Applications like Planetlab and simulation written using YALPS can be run both in simulation and in real-world mode without changing a single line of code.
