I'm a software engineer and researcher with physics, embedded systems and robotics background. I lead a computer security research team and I love data. All my research on embedded systems, industrial network, communication protocols, artificial inteligence and biology usually converge into robotics. I have a lot of experience on Control Theory, Sensor data acquisition, Digital Filters, Computer Vision, Path Planing and ROS for various drones(on earth and air) and, latelly, I've been working with humanoids, biofeedback and bio-inspired(or embedded) robotics. I've been, also, researching, on my own for now, neuroengineering, my new found passion, and I've started making some non-invasive readings trying to recreate experiments from papers.

Lately, I've been working for some fintechs as Backend, Infrastructure and Security Engineer on various parts of payment transaction pipeline, from POS runtime and payment gateway development to blockchain smartcontract code and node management, fraud detection and PCI, trying to automate everything I could.

I have been working with C and assembly(for x86, pic, arm and z80) since 1998 and Python since 2006. I'm a huge fan of erlang, lisp and its flavors(elixir and lfe for erlang, clojure for lisp) and I try, whenever I can, to write hardware binding and industrial communication protocol for them. Since 2015, I've been working a lot with ruby and node.js not just for web but as integration tools, and Golang, my main work language nowadays, since 2016. I, also, love reverse engineering software and hardware. It is the kind of things I do when I get free time.

I blog here to reflect on academia, research, security, and myself. I post a lot of pictures of my everyday life, my trips, conferencies, my passions and random things on Instagram. I'm also on Twitter, Researchgate, Keybase and all my public codes may be found in Github.
