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

Where am I?

Action!

My current research project is branded Experimentation and modeling of health care mobilization campaigns, and was sponsored by a FAPESP postdoctoral scholarship (process 2012/05820-3) at the School of Medicine of the University of Sao Paulo, and currently sponsored by a Brazilian Unified Health System Research Projects (PPSUS) grant
I also work on other research, providing an environment for collective learning of mindfulness techniques among health professionals and studying and integrating the knowledge production communities around the city of Ubatuba
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
I am known to shape air into pleasurable waveforms, bend myself, bend and move other people and move myself along with other people according to pleasurable waveforms, and pretend to be somebody else in some other place and time

Some academic interests

Collaboration and decentralization in sociotechnical systems
...that produce knowledge and 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
