Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students can be part of my research team by the following options: (i) Scientific Initiation Program, (ii) development of an Undergraduate Final Project or (iii) applying for participate in a given research project as an Undergraduate Researcher. Normally, students from the undergraduate programs of Computer Engineering, Electronics Engineering and Computer Science have been working with me, but compromised students from other disciplines are also welcome.

If you are identified with one of my research interests, please send me an e-mail. My current undergraduate students are listed below.
