PhD Candidate in Informatics – Complex Systems track – at Indiana University (IN, USA) under supervision of Prof. Luis Rocha. Received a Master in Business Administration and a Bachelor in Management Information Systems from the Universidade Regional de Blumenau (FURB) in Brazil. Taught the classes "General Systems Theory", "Management Information Systems" and "Foundations in Information Systems" at FURB as a substitute professor. Managed the Technology Development & Transfer Laboratory (LDTT) from the School of Systems and Computing at FURB. Author of papers in Complex Networks and Systems and Computational Social Science; and papers and book chapters in Business Intelligence. Consultant in Information Technology applied to Business Management.
My main interests involve the study of emergent behaviour from a collective intelligence perspective. A variety of natural and artificial systems present such behaviour, especially those with humans at their center. More recently, I've been specially involved in the study of these systems in order to improve the societal impact of complexity science.
