About me

lucas carvalho's photo - phd student IC unicampI am a PhD student in Computer Science of Institute of Computing at University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil, since September 2014. Master in Computer Science from Computing Department at Federal University of Sergipe (UFS), 2011-2013. Bachelor of Computer Science from Computing Department at Federal University of Sergipe (UFS), 2005-2009.

I work at Laboratory of Information Systems (LIS) at Institute of Computing under supervision of Prof. Claudia Bauzer Medeiros, Ph.D. I hold a scholarship from São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

I have done research in several fields of Computer Science such as Recommenter Systems, Software Engineering, Interactive Digital Television (iDTV) and currently working with Scientific Data Management. Former member of Image Processing and Artificial Intelligence Research Group (Pii/CNPq) at UFS, under advisement of Prof. Hendrik Teixeira Macedo, PhD.

PhD Project

My thesis is focused on designing tools and methodologies to foster collaboration among scientists from different disciplines. This collaboration is based on reuse of experiment modeled as scientific workflows. Our ultimate goal is to develop a workflow repository supporting new retrieval mechanisms based on provenance data and ontologies.

This project is in the context of CEPID / CCES (The Center of Computational Engineering and Sciences) at Unicamp, Campinas, Brazil. The CCES congregates experts from 6 different domains -- Computer Science, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Applied Mathematics and Mechanical Engineering and is funded by São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP).

Prototype: W2Share

My advisor is professor Claudia Bauzer Medeiros, PhD.

Visiting Research Project (Marina del Rey, CA, USA)

A new approach to track and analyze the evolution of scientific experiments. (scholarship supported by FAPESP, grant #2017/03570-3 )

Supervisor: Yolanda Gil

Institution: Information Sciences Institute (ISI), University of Southern California (USC)

This research proposal aims at investigating how to track and analyze the evolution of computational experiments, as scientists iteratively design, execute, share, and reuse their data analysis workflows. This will allow the analysis and comparison of workflow versions and how different workflow executions relate to each other. Our ultimate goal is to foster knowledge capture, reuse and understandability of experiments.We will base our approach taking advantage of (database) versioning and provenance models.

Current Research Project (Campinas, SP, Brazil)

Modeling data through different science experiments using scientific workflow and ontologies. (scholarship supported by FAPESP, grant #2014/23861-4)

The goal of this project is to provide a common data infrastructure to all researchers in the CCES Center, supporting sharing and reuse of data and models used and/or produced by the Center . The idea is to adopt the notion of scientific workflows as the basis to specify executable models, and create a common computational platform to design, annotate and reuse such workflows.
