I am Brazilian, born in São Roque, Sao Paulo state. I lived with my father and two brothers (Sergio, Sergio Jr. and Vitor) until early 2003, when I moved to Presidente Prudente city aiming to study Computer Science at the Sao Paulo State University (UNESP). In that period, I developed a passion for the academic life and became determined to pursue an academic career after receiving my Bachelor's degree. Upon graduation, end of Fall 2007 (5-year program), I moved to Campinas city for the Master's degree program of the Institute of Computing (IC), University of Campinas (UNICAMP). I finished my Masters in March/2010 under supervision of Prof. Dr. Ricardo da Silva Torres. I received a Doctorate degree in Computer Science at the same university in March/2014 under supervision of Prof. Dr. Torres and co-supervision of Prof. Dr. Anderson Rocha. From March/2014 to March/2015, I was post-doc research at Institute of Computing - University of Campinas  under supervision of Prof. Dr. Torres. From April/2012 to April/2013 I lived in Tampa/Florida where I was a visiting scholar at University of South Florida (USF) under supervision of Prof. Dr. Sudeep Sarkar. Currently, I am a Professor of the Instituto of Science and Technology at the Federal University of Sao Paulo (UNIFESP).
