Short Bio

Raphael is a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Campinas, supervised by Prof. Christian E. Rothenberg.
He holds a degree in Communication Networks Engineering from University of Brasilia, a MSc degree in Computer Science from University of Campinas, and a PhD in Computer Engineering from the University of Campinas.
During his PhD, he worked for two years as a visiting researcher in Ericsson Research Hungary, where he contributed to EU-FP7 Unify project, developed activities within H2020 5G Exchange project, and participated in the internal 5G Realization program. His main interests sit on state-of-the-art SDN and NFV research topics entangled with disruptive technologies, aiming to open source his pet projects.
His research approaches three intertwined topics in communication networks: a methodology for virtualized network functions benchmarking automation, by which he stands a standardization effort in the Benchmarking Methodology Working Group at IETF; the analysis of network slice footprints through big data techniques and machine learning algorithms; and decentralized applications for partnership agreements among multiple administrative domains establishing Service Level Agreements through Blockchain platforms.
In all these topics, Raphael has conducted extensive tests via prototypes on emulated environments, generating from each one of them tens of gigabytes of data. Currently, he investigates techniques to rationalize such data for network orchestration and management purposes.

Raphael is the author of Gym :: A Testing Framework for Automated NFV Performance Benchmarking:
