I am a computer science PhD candidate at PUC-Rio's LabLua, under the advisorship of Prof. Roberto Ierusalimschy. I specialize on Programming Languages and I am interested in the implementation of dynamically typed languages, virtual machines, just-in-time compilation and type systems.

At the moment I am also a visiting student at Northeastern University's Programming Reasearch Laboratory, in collaboration with Prof. Jan Vitek.

My PhD research is focused on the design and implementation of Pallene, a statically-typed, ahead-of-time-compiled, and performance-focused subset of the Lua programming language.
