Ontology, Information Behavior, Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity


I have a Master’s degree in Information Science from the University of Brasilia where I am now a PhD student. My doctoral research aims to develop a conceptual model of the human information behavior of information security professionals. A qualitative study using a questionnaire and interviews in nearly completed. The intended next stage is a dynamic model based on ontologies and artificial intelligence that could simulate information behavior in order well enough to plan improved information support services and to predict user responses. I have bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and 15 years of professional experience in hardware and firmware development for cryptographic systems and protocols. My professional experience also includes developing systems using Assembly Programming, C ++, and Python. I participated in the development of the first versions of the Brazilian electronic voting system and worked on the analysis of security risks of critical infrastructures based on SCADA systems and the events of the 2014 FIFA Soccer World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
