Education: BS, Universidade de Brasília; Ph D, Rice University; MS, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro
Research Interests: Digital signal processing with emphasis on wavelet transforms, Fourier transform, time-frequency analysis, compressive sensing, tomographic imaging, overcomplete signal expansions, and parameter estimation. Processing of one-dimensional or multidimensional signals, collected with dense sensor arrays and processed with computationally intensive algorithms running on computer clusters. The main applications of the research include tomography and source localization in biomedical and radar imaging. Other interests include digital and analog hardware architecture and design to create dedicated instrumentation that complements the infrastructure needed for the research.
