Who am I?

I am a computer hacker dedicated to develop and advocate Free Software, because I believe this is the way for people to truly control the technology around them. Other than contributing to Free Software projects, I've promoted events, given lectures and advocated discussions on why Free Software is a matter of importance in today's society. I also contributed to the creation of LibrePlanet São Paulo (in Portuguese), a team of skilled hackers dedicated to spread the word about Software Freedom and promote education on the GNU/Linux operating system.

Currently, I'm an engineer at the IBM Linux Technology Center1, working on device drivers development for the Linux Kernel. My main areas of interest are Operating Systems, Compilers, Security, Virtual Machines and Computer Networks. Some of my previous work involve automatic generation of virtual machines and optimization selection during compilation.

I'm in the senior year of my undergraduate education in Computer Science at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP). In addition, I'm also a member of LMCAD and LSC, the two research labs at UNICAMP where I did most of my research projects.

Previous Work

ARMv7 simulator

A platform virtual machine of an ARMv7 based device, written in ArchC and C++, capable of partially booting a GNU/Linux operating system.


A Free Software system to estimate speed of vehicles using only video cameras. We presented this at the Intel Embedded Systems Competition, during the III Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering.
