Who's coming? - asks the leaf
It's the wind, blowing you faraway

Where am I?

The dynamics and social organization of innovation in the field of oncology, a research collaboration between groups in Canada, France and the USA sponsored by a Canadian Institutes of Health Research Grant (MOP-341895)
Experimentation and modeling of health care mobilization campaigns, a research intervention in collaboration with several institutions working in the health care network of M'boi Mirim neighbourhood of São Paulo city, initially sponsored by a FAPESP postdoctoral scholarship (process 2012/05820-3) at the School of Medicine of the University of Sao Paulo, currently sponsored by a Brazilian Unified Health System Research Projects (PPSUS / FAPESP+CNPq+MS) grant
Studying and integrating the knowledge production communities around the city of Ubatuba, a research intervention sponsored by the IDRC (Canada) program for Open and Collaborative Science for Development and led by IBICT (Rio de Janeiro)
X|Cool is a space I started with some friends where kids and adults learn through art and technology by mixing practices from democratic education and hackerspaces
Because I have too much free time, I facilitate the brazilian Open Science Working Group, organize and tutor courses on technology, sharing and collaboration, collaborate with the ATOPOS new media research group, and administer the Portuguese language Wikiversity
When done with all that, I hang out (at home in bed or) at Garoa Hacker Clube, the hackerspace I'm a member of
I am known for shaping air into pleasurable waveforms, bending myself, bending and moving other people and moving myself along with other people according to pleasurable waveforms, and pretending to be somebody else in some other place and time

Some academic interests

Collaboration and decentralization in sociotechnical systems
...that produce knowledge, goods, action or decision making
Social and information technologies to enable the above
Diffusion and contagion in social networks
Past interests now more like strong curiosity:
Dynamical systems and chaos
Non-equilibrium statistical mechanics
Fundamental physics
Cognitive neuroscience
