A long way for a surfer who pretends to be able to sing and happens to have a degree in Computer Science:
I got my BSc and MSc in Computer Science at Federal University of Paraná (UFPR, Curitiba – Brazil). My MSc thesis is an assessment of computer’s memory hierarchy behaviour, based on CPU performance counters on linux machines.
Outside of academia, for a number of years I worked as a linux/Unix support analyst as well as a system analyst, building software tools and designing project’s solutions for SIMEPAR Technological Institute, a meteorological research centre in Curitiba. The interest in a PhD sparked after I started lecturing at Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR) and UFPR universities.
Under Giovanni Coco's supervision, I'm doing my PhD research on offshore and near-shore wave climate projections for the 21st century, the New Zealand area in particular. I am absolutely passionate about this work and happy to share the project outcome with the wave community, improving our understanding of the future wave climate of New Zealand.
