Drones I am on the faculty job market this year!

I am a PhD candidate at MIT in the Laboratory for Information & Decision Systems (LIDS) advised by Prof. Eytan Modiano. My research is on Communication Networks, particularly in the development and deployment of network control algorithms designed to keep information fresh in large-scale wireless networks. To develop algorithms I use tools from Mathematical Optimization, Stochastic Control and Network Protocols. To deploy those algorithms I use platforms such as Software Defined Radios and Raspberry Pi's.

Before the PhD, I received two SM degrees, one in Communication Networks from MIT in 2016, and another in Telecommunications from the Instituto Tecnologico de Aeronautica (ITA) in Brazil in 2013, as well as a BSc in Electronic Engineering from ITA in 2010.

Besides solving challenging problems in Communication Networks, I have a keen interest in teaching. For four semesters, I was the Teaching Assistant in the class Communication Systems & Networks at MIT. During that time, I had the opportunity to create an entire Software Defined Radio laboratory from the ground up and give lectures to undergraduate and graduate students.
