CV Lattes

After completing my PhD in 2012, I worked for four years in the research and development team at the Samsung Brazil Research Center, where I worked on a project titled "Ecosystem for Digital Education." During this period, I had the privilege of developing intelligent technologies to support teaching and learning processes in schools with limited internet access (Manaus Region and Campinas Periphery). Additionally, I participated in mentoring activities in Samsung's startup program, assisting education and social impact-focused startups in developing their products. I also collaborated with researchers from South Korea and several Brazilian universities through research and innovation projects in educational technologies. This experience allowed for a broad immersion in the difficulties and challenges related to the use of technology in public schools, as well as recognizing the value and importance of a technological solution for social good.After this period, I chose to return to the academic environment as a permanent faculty member at the Federal University of Pelotas. Since 2017, I have been involved in teaching, research, extension, and innovation projects. The industry experience I gained enabled me to identify and learn about the importance of collaboration through strategic partnerships. Among them, I highlight my strong collaboration with the Municipal Department of Education of Pelotas, the State Department of Education of Rio Grande do Sul, Pelotas Technological Park, and various other partners who share the goal of a fair and equal education, combining efforts to transform how we encourage knowledge construction by students.Throughout my career, I also emphasize my role as the deputy coordinator of the Special Commission on Informatics in Education (2020-2021), Associate Editor of the Brazilian Journal of Informatics in Education (2019-2021), founding partner of Startup Elimu (2018), founding partner of Startup OPenSense (from which I liquidated my participation in 2019), technical director of Pelotas Technological Park, and coordinator of Criar Lab at Pelotas Technological Park. It is clear to me that my professional life goal is to leave a legacy related to the production of scientifically proven technologies and processes that can be disseminated in elementary and higher education networks, generating social impact.
