I am currently an assistant professor at the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization of the University of Waterloo. I spent one year (August 2008-July 2009) as a Goldstine Postdoctoral Fellow at IBM Research. I completed my PhD studies in the Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization (ACO) program of Georgia Tech and defended my thesis in July 2008, supervised by Prof. Bill Cook. I have an undergraduate and a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering which I obtained from PUC-Rio, under the supervision of Prof. Oscar Porto. Some of my research interests are on cutting planes for general mixed-integer programming, computational mixed-integer programming, operations research and the solution of combinatorial optimization problems, in particular vehicle routing and similar problems.
