I am currently pursuing my doctoral degree in Software Engineering at the Software Languages Security Lab at UTD under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Hamlen.
My research seeks scientific approaches to make software systems more secure and resilient against cyber threats, with a focus on leveraging language-based techniques to engineer applications with proactive and deceptive capabilities that degrade attackers' methods and disrupt their reconnaissance efforts.
I am a software engineer with over four years of work experience in the development of industrial software systems. I have excellent knowledge of modern/agile practices and processes, having technically led large-scale projects. I also have thorough technical knowledge in Object Oriented Modeling and Design, Domain Driven Design and Aspect Oriented Programming.
I speak Portuguese, English, French, and some Italian. When not working, I love to spend some time cooking with my wife, playing my violin, and contemplating nature.
