I always tried to improve my career not only through personal achievements at my former and current jobs, but also through some research in software related to embedded, real-time and distributed systems in the industrial automation field.

When possible, I also try to improve my technical and basic management skills working as a consultant or freelancer in small projects related to software development & testing as well as electrical and electronics engineering.

My DREAM JOB: work in a company's R&D division and at the same time get a PhD degree (preferably related to my professional work). I strong believe that this would be a win-win situation (for me and my employer)!

I have a M.Sc. degree in Electronics Instrumentation (after graduating in Electrical and Electronics Engineering), reasonable working experience in a lot of different places as well as some flexibility in working and getting along with people from completely different cultures.

Being born in Brazil, with family roots in Italy & Germany, and married to a Japanese woman (and living in Japan for fifteen years), I feel very comfortable when working and socializing with people from different backgrounds.

Besides Portuguese, I can understand English and Spanish easily and also intermediate Japanese language. My preferred field of work is around electronics engineering (instrumentation & measurement, semiconductors, industrial automation, robotics, etc) and software development (design, programming, and testing).

I am always available to discuss new opportunities related to consulting, freelance work or research (inside Japan OR abroad) and a permanent full-position (PREFERABLY abroad). Feel free to contact me if needed.

IMPORTANT: If you just want to get connected with me here at LinkedIn send me a PERSONALIZED message (not the automatic one ;-) please. Otherwise, your invitation will be probably ignored...
