Work Experience

Since 2017

Principal Performance Engineer

Akamai Technologies

Performance Engineer for live and on demand media. Analysis of network and product performance based on key performance metrics to increase QoS and prevent service disruptions to customers of the globally distributed media infrastructure networks that support 10+ Million simultaneous users in big events like the Olympics or the FIFA World Cup. These analyses are based on large datasets collected from production networks and explored by custom internal solutions or with the usage of open source solutions, like Hadoop, Grafana, and Postgres.

During my work in NIC.br, I was part of the IPv6.br Project. The project goal was to disseminate the IPv6 usage in Brazil.

Brazil IP


Brazil IP


The Brazil-IP Project was a collaborative effort of Brazilian universities to support the development of the semiconductor industry in Brazil. The project was sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the main goals were to form human resources and design houses capable to develop semiconductor chip projects.
