João Marcelo Uchôa de Alencar
Born in northeast Brazil, where I lived my whole life. Started studying computer science at the State University of Ceará (www.uece.br) and while there I started working with High Performance Computing for CENAPAD-UFC (www.cenapad.ufc.br). Since then, I have been playing with clusters. I got my masters from UFC (www.mdcc.ufc.br) and now I'm during my Phd in the same institution. I'm also an assistant lecturer at UFC-Quixadá (www.quixada.ufc.br).
