Google Summer of Code May. 2017 - Aug. 2017
Software Developer Scipy
· I have successfully completed Google Summer of Code program under the mentorship of Matt Haber-
land, Nikolay Mayorov and Ralf Gommers. My project was the implementation of an interior-point
solver for large-scale nonlinear programming problems. The implementation is available in the GitHub
repository and is being integrated to SciPy,
the Python scientific library, through the pull request #7729.
Invent Vision Jan. 2015 - Dec. 2015
Hardware Team Intern Belo Horizonte, Brazil
· I was part of the hardware development team and worked designing FPGA-based cameras. The major
project I have worked on while there was the design and implementation of a stereo camera.

Contributions to Scipy
· I am a member of SciPy core development team, having contributed to optimization and signal pro-
cessing packages with the implementation of IIR filters (implementation of functions iirnotch and
irrpeak), trust-region optimization methods (implementation of method trust-exact) and other gen-
eral improvements (such as modifications in the BFGS implementation to improve its performance).
