About Me

Who Am I?

Hi I'm Diego Haddad I hold a doctorate in electrical engineering from COPPE / UFRJ (2013), a master's degree in electrical engineering (2008) from the same institution and a degree in electrical engineering with an emphasis on telecommunications from the State University of Rio de Janeiro (2005). I'm a Computer Engineering Professor (CEFET-RJ campus PetrĂ³polis), and I'm with the Master's Program in Electrical Engineering (PPEEL-CEFET/RJ), the Master's Program in Computing (PPCIC-CEFET / RJ) and the Doctorate in Instrumentation and Applied Optics (PPGIO, CEFET/RJ-UFF). I am currently coordinator of the Master Program in Electrical Engineering (PPEEL-CEFET/RJ). I was a member of the Technical Program Committee of the AES-Brasil Audio Engineering Congress (2011, 2014 and 2015), Offshore Technology Conference (2011) and of SBrT 2019.
