Carlos H. C. Teixeira's Home Page 

I am a Ph.D student in the Computer Science Department at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG). My current research is focused on distributed algorithms for graph mining.

For the next months, I am going to be a visiting scholar at Purdue University. In the past, I was a research associate at Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) and also a visiting scholar at The Ohio State University (OSU). I received my M.Sc degree in 2011 from UFMG, working with Prof. Wagner Meira Jr.
