Hi, I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the School of Computing in Florida Tech under the supervision of Prof. Ronaldo Menezes. I completed my Master's (thesis) and Bachelor's (final project) degrees in Computer Engineering at Escola Politécnica de Pernambuco in the University of Pernambuco under the supervision of Dr. Carmelo Bastos-Filho. I am a member of the BioComplex laboratory and CIRG. Here you can get preprints of my papers without fighting against paywalls, and my CV.



— June 20: We organized the second NetCrime (Symposium on the Structure and Mobility of Crime) at NetSci 2017. More information at:
