Dr. Romulo Pereira Goncalves
Function and Responsibilities:
Software Developer Project Lead at GFZ Helmholtz Innovation Lab - FERN.Lab.
- Remote sensing data.
- Spatial-temporal data analysis.
- Distributed data storage systems and data catalogs.
- Distributed and parallel computing.
I have mainly worked as researcher in Computer Science. The main focus of my research was database systems. I did most my research at the Database research group from the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in the Netherlands, followed by one year PostDoc at IBM research center in California.
In the past years I shifted from fundamental research to applied research with special focus on storage and processing systems for GeoSpatial data. Such work was done at the Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC). I was responsible to foresee which technology directions on optimized data handling NLeSC should follow to enable Space, Earth and Life Sciences short- and longterm research agendas. Special focus on strategic collaborations and alliances to research, design and implement data management solutions for spatio-temporal analysis on large banks of remote sensing data. Set up of generalization projects to pursue software sustainability and FAIR data.
Since May 2020 I work as Software Developer Project Lead at GFZ Helmholtz Innovation Lab - FERN.Lab, which is a technology and transfer platform for innovative methods developed at Department 1.
Education:2006: I have a Systems and Computer Science Engineering Academic Diploma: University of Minho, Braga, Portugal.
2013: A PhD about distributed database architectures from the University of Amsterdam. My PhD research was done at the Database research group from the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica in the Netherlands.
