Since 2018, I am assistant professor at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Technical University of Delft in The Netherlands, where I am a member of the Optimization Group. Before that I was assistant professor at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of São Paulo. I completed my PhD at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in Amsterdam and was a postdoc at Tilburg University in The Netherlands, and then at the Freie Universität Berlin.

How to cite me
Brazilian/Portuguese names are usually very long, and mine is not particularly an easy one. In case you wish to cite me, keep in mind the following: my last name is "Oliveira". It is acceptable to cite me as "de Oliveira Filho" or "de Oliveira", but better yet is just "Oliveira". In any case, note "Filho" is just Portuguese for "Junior", so you should not call me "Filho" when you cite me.

Vidi lineas fabrorum vel etiam tenuissimas, sicut filum araneae (...)
Moreover, the memory contains the innumerable principles and laws of numbers and dimensions. (...) I have heard the sounds of the words which signify these things when they are the subject of discussion. But the sounds are one thing, the principles another. The sounds vary according to whether the terms are Latin or Greek. But numerical principles are neither Greek nor Latin nor any other kind of language. I have seen the lines drawn by architects. They are extremely thin, like a spider's web. But in pure mathematics lines are quite different. They are not images of the lines about which my bodily eye informs me. A person knows them without any thought of a physical line of some kind; he knows them within himself.
