Who I am:
- I am from
I took Electrical Engineering at
University of Sao Paulo.
I then worked at the University on an Autonomous Mobile Robot;
as a result, I got a master in Engineering. I worked some more
there and then came to the glorious
I finished my PhD there and went back to the
University of Sao Paulo,
where I am now an Assistant Professor at the Escola Politécnica
- At CMU,
I was a member of the VASC group.
Part of my work happened in the context of the
Lunar Rover project, specifically in the
- I like to play
I used to play tennis with my wife,
and I always lost. I used to play soccer with the Robotics
Viking Death Rats.
I was captain of the team for four years, during which we
eventually got the gold (we were Intramurals champions in 1995).
I also like to read, particularly French and Russian literature
of the ninenteenth century, but I have not been able to read much
since my son was born.
- Maybe you should look at my publications
or at my CV (English/Portuguese),
as of March 2001.
- In my work on the
of sets of probabilities, I explore
inference and decision-making when probability values are imprecise.
I am working with algorithms for computation of probability bounds
through linear fractional programming and other forms of optimization.
On these lines, you can take a look at the web sites for the
and the Second
Symposia on Imprecise Probabilities and Their Applications
(which I co-organized) and the Imprecise
Probabilities Project (which I co-edit).
- The JavaBayes system
is my implementation of Bayesian Networks in Java;
the system is distributed under the GNU license. Take a look
at it and enjoy the system; one of its unique features is the possibility
of modeling sets of probabilities in the networks.
Also, a related item is the

- Apart from these issues, I have worked in a variety of problems,
mostly in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence; I have been
particularly involved with mobile robots and their sensors.
I worked mostly in the context of the
where I explored
vision techniques for outdoor position estimation.
