I am currently a Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Hawaii and Assistant Professor at the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I received my PhD from the Observatório Nacional, Brazil, for the creation of the open-source software Tesseroid and Fatiando a Terra and for my work on large-scale gravity inversion. My research focuses on inverse problems in potential field geophysics with a heavy dose of open-source software development. Lately, I am developing the Python bindings for the Generic Mapping Tools.
