He holds a D.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in HCI and a B.Sc. in Computer Engineering, both from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). In his thesis, he explored using log data to generate narratives based on previous interaction with a visual analytics application. During his masters, he developed a pen-based early prototyping software that allows users to sketch user interfaces and program behaviors.
Prior to joining IBM Research, Vinicius worked at the Computer Graphics Technology Group at PUC-Rio (Tecgraf). He was part of the development team for a massive models visualization software.
His main research interests are human-computer interaction, computer graphics, and information visualization.
