Personal Summary


Born in Campina Grande, Brazil, 1990. He is currently a post-doc researcher in the Telecommunication Software at the Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG) and the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT – Ireland), working on the Cognet project for the deveopment of the european 5G.  He received his Ph.D. in Telecommunication Software from the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT-Ireland), M.Sc. degree in Computer Science at the Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG – Brazil) and B.Tech. degree in Telematics at the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Paraiba (IFPB - Brazil). He is also a collaborator at the Nano Communications Center (NC2), Tampere – Finland. He was a visiting researcher at the Signal and Systems Group at the Uppsala University, Uppsala – Sweden, under the guidance of Prof. Subhrakanti Dey. Prior to his PhD studies, he was with the Institute for Advanced Studies in Communications (IECOM), where activities were concentrated in a few R&D projects as well as research in Dynamic Route Allocation for DWDM networks using evolutionary techniques and Traffic Classification in DiffServ Networks. His experience concentrates on Dynamic Optical Networks, Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks, Routing, Ip Traffic Classification, QoS-DiffServ Aware Networks and Molecular Communications, publishing more than 30 papers in international journals and conferences. He is also a reviewer for many journals and participated as technical program committee and reviewer for various international conferences.
