Lattes CV | Personal Homepage

He is Department chair and associate professor of the Department of Mathematics at PUC-Rio and his main research interests are in Computational Modeling, Scientific Visualization and Petroleum reservoir modeling. Since 1996, he has been working in reservoir characterization and research projects related to the oil industry. He received his PhD degree in Applied Mathematics at Pontificial Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) in 1997.

He worked at SCI Institute - Univertity of Utah in 2004, Scientific visualization group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in July/September 2003 and NYU - New York University - Polytechnic Institute in 2012 as a visiting professor.

Research Results

Together with Abelardo Barreto and Renan Vieira Bela, I have been worked on injectivity test which consists a procedure in the area of formation evaluation used to collect information about oil reservoir. Important reservoir properties can be estimated by this technique, such as equivalent permeability. More specifically we worked on the development of new models involving vertical, horizontal and multi-layer wells [Bela 2019].

Together with Lis Custódio (PUC-Rio), Cláudio Silva (NYU-Poly) and Thiago Etiene (SCI-Institute), we studied the Marching Cubes 33 algorithm to ensure the extracted isosurface topology of the trilinear interpolant. The first results were presented in [Custódio et al. 2013] and follow in [Custodio et ,. Al 2019].
