Marcos Roriz Junior

I’m an adjunct professor of Transportation Engineering at Faculty of Science and Technology (FCT) in Federal University of Goiás (UFG). I’m interested in exploring Computer Science within Transportation Engineering through Computational Intelligence (e.g., Machine Learning and Data Mining) and Distributed Systems (e.g., Internet of Things and Data Stream Processing) to enable Intelligent Transportation Systems and Smart Cities. Further, I’m also interested on investigating the effects and how to evaluate the impacts of such systems in the society.

I hold a PhD. degree (2017) in Informatics from the Department of Informatics of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). In 2013, I received a M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the Instituto de Informática (INF) at Federal University of Goiás (UFG). I also received my bachelor degree in Computer Science from the same institute and university (INF/UFG) at 2011. I have participated in numerous research projects, from public and private agencies, such as DELL, Microsoft Research, RNP, FAPEG and FAPERJ. In addition, I participated in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics consortium that developed an Intelligent Transportation System to aid traffic operators during the Olympic games of Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
