Alberto is graduated in Mechanical Engineering by State University of Campinas (1994) having participated in the Exchange Program for Engineering Students at Institut National Des Sciences Appliquees de Lyon - France (1992-1993). He has Master and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering by Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, State University of Campinas (1998 and 2002, respectively) in the following areas: High Order Spectral/hp Finite Element formulations for 3D unstructured meshes applied to non-linear Elasticity, Algebraic Multigrid schemes and scientific software coding in C++ language. Alberto also concluded two post-doctorates in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) area, one at Faculty of Civil Engineering, State University of Campinas (2004), and the other at Brazilian Aerospace Institute, Department of Aerospace Science and Technology - DCTA (2006). In the last 10 years Alberto has accumulated industrial and R,D&I experience in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) particularly in CFD branch. His areas of interest are: High-order Discontinuous Galerkin Method (DGM), Spectral Element Method (SEM), Finite Element Method (FEM), Finite Volume Method (FVM), Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM), compressible inviscid and viscous flows at high Mach and Reynolds numbers, turbulence modeling, incompressible multi-phase flows in porous media, microflows/nanoflows and High Performance Computing (HPC) for engineering simulation. Since May 2013, Alberto is a research staff member at Brazil's IBM Research Laboratory working within the Natural Resources group.
