Here you can find some information about me, my research, and those courses that I have taught or currently teaching.
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), located in the city of Recife, PE, Brazil. Also I am the President of the Brazilian Society for Applied and Computational Mathematics (SBMAC). My current research activity can be divided into three broad lines. The main part is focused in using interacting particle systems, percolation models and special stochastic processes on graphs to describe the spread of an information and other similar phenomena on a population. More precisely, I work with stochastic rumors! Also, I am interested in studying (asymptotical) properties of random structures inspired by biological questions, and related subjects of discrete mathematics. This includes some percolation and random graph models. Finally, and more recently, I started to get involved in studying a new algebraic structure called evolution algebra. My interest in this subject is because it has been suggested in the literature the existence of a nice interplay between this concept and some notions related to discrete-time Markov chains.
My Erdös number is 3
(I haved worked with Kang who worked with Loebl who worked with Erdös).
My Mathematics Genealogy is given by
Fabio Machado (and Elcio Lebensztayn), Pablo Ferrari, Enrique Andjel, Thomas Liggett, Karlin, Bochner, Schmidt, Hilbert, Lindemann, Klein, Plücker, Gerling, Gauss, Pfaff, Kästner, Hausen, Witchmannshausen, Mencke, Thomasius, and Leibniz (1643)!
Here is the list of those courses that I have taught or currently teaching. As they have been taught in Brazil, and since this information is mostly to my current students, I present the list in Portuguese!
