General info


Short bio

Professional Alan de Freitas is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP).
Education He obtained his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, on the field of Computational Intelligence, from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil), University of Sheffield (UK), and ORT Braude College of Engineering (Israel) (split PhD). He got his M.S. and B.S. in Computer Science from the Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP).
Research He developed the method of Aggregation Trees for analysis and visualization of high-dimensional data while working at the Rolls-Royce Control & Systems University Technology Centre (UK) and when he was a Marie Curie researcher within the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) of the European Commission CORDIS. Then, the method was applied to the design of aircraft engines. Since then, the method has independently evolved into the broader category of Aggregated Set Property Visualization. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Montreal (UdeM) and McGill University, where many applications related to the design of IPM Motors were developed. The method has also been applied to Computational Art and Music, Vehicle Routing, Reverse Logistics, and Channel Configuration in WLAN networks. He currently coordinates research groups focused on the development of Compilers and Solvers for innovative Symbolic and Logic Modelling Languages, which can represent and solve, not only Gray-Box Optimization Problems, but also Large-Scale Multi-Agent Systems distributed over P2P Networks which use Big Data in order to analyse behavioural theories as well as Agent-Based Macroeconomic Models.
Professor As an educationalist, he coordinated the project "Aluno Integrado", which has taught the basic of informatics and computer maintenance to more than 10 thousands students from low-income regions of Brazil. He is also the author of a video course and a didactic book of introduction to programming in C++, which have been used by more than 30 thousands students every year.

Languages


Languages

English
Fluent Conversationally fluent
I lived in Australia as a teenager, did the most relevant part of my Ph.D. in the UK, and all my past jobs were in English. I currently conduct all my research in English, and also teach in English in our Graduate program.
Spanish
Intermediate Can understand and read well
Spanish is a romance language and thus it is very similar to my mother tongue. I have also studied Spanish and have had friends who speak Spanish since I was a child.
Portuguese
Fluent Mother tongue
More specifically, my mother tongue is Brazilian Portuguese.
French
Basic Reads Well
I have studied French since I was a child but due to the lack of practical experience I can read reasonably well in French but have difficulty speaking/understanding.
Japanese
Basic Comprehends Reasonably, Speaks Little
I have always had a close relationship with many friends from Japan and that got me into studying the language. Since then, I have been to Japan a few times but while I still understand the grammar well, my vocabulary is now very poor due to the lack of practice.
