Mini vita

Currently, I am an associate professor at the Institute of Computing, University of Campinas (UNICAMP) since December, 2009. I received a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Federal University of Lavras (UFLA) in 2003. I received the Masters degree (2006) and PhD (2009) in Computer Science from the Institute of Computing, University of Campinas. Finally, I worked at the same Institute as a Postdoc fellow until December 2009.

My main research interests include problems related to Digital Forensics, Biometrics, Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence and Reasoning for Complex Data.


Some Research Interests

If you would like to research in one or more of the following topics, please feel free to contact me. Students are more than welcome. Furthermore, if you have one specific topic in mind and want to discuss it, I'm also open to new ideas.

Digital Forensics
  1. Image, video and text forgery detection
  2. Source camera, scanner, and printer identification
  3. Photoreaslism vs. natural images categorization
  4. Spoofing creation and detection
  5. Digital content forensic aspects
  1. Face, gait, multi-gesture recognition
  2. Feature localization and description
  3. Biometric failure predition
  4. Multi-biometrics and fusion
Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
  1. Binary and Multi-classification
  2. Large-Scale Machine Learning
  3. Classification failure prediction (Meta-recognition and Meta-cognition)
  4. Open-set recognition
Reasoning for Complex Data
  1. Scene (e.g., images, videos) description and categorization
  2. Object recognition
  3. Large-Scale Information Retrieval (e.g., images, videos, and text)
  4. Disease classification in medical images
