About Marinho

In October 2019 I joined the School of Computer and Mathematical Sciences at University of Waikato as a Senior Lecturer. Between 2010 and 2019 I worked as an Associate Professor at INF/UFRGS,  and prior to that, at Unisinos (1993-2008) and PUC-RS (2008-2009), all in Brazil. I was a holder of a distinguished researcher CNPq grant (Level 1D).

As for public service, I am a currently member of the ACM SIGCOMM executive committee (helping with diversity and outreach), a co-chair of its CARES committee (against harassment), and a member of ACM CoNEXT steering committee. I have regularly contributed to the organisation of first-tier scientific events, such as SIGCOMM and CoNEXT.

I am fortunate to have supervised many bright students. Contact me if you are interested in a PhD (or Masters), but please first check my recent papers to ensure we are a good match (tell me the ones that interested you and why). Sometimes I receive applications that  propose work in areas I have no expertise, such as wi-fi. They are like spam and I move them straight away to the bin :)
