Professor Daniel Macêdo Batista

Since 2011 Daniel Macêdo Batista is Professor at the University of São Paulo (USP), the major institution of higher learning and research in Brazil (Currently, USP is responsible for more than 20% of all scientific production in Brazil). He received his Computer Science (2003) degree from Federal University of Bahia, Brazil, MSc in Computer Science (2006) and PhD in Computer Science (2010) degrees from State University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. At Unicamp, he was advised by Professor Nelson Fonseca. Prof. Daniel received the title of "Livre Docente", equivalent to Associate Professor, in Computer Networks from the University of São Paulo in 2017. Since 2024 he is the Executive Coordinator of Information Technology at USP. Currently, his main research interests are:

IoT Security, B5G, and Data Analytics applied to Computer Networks.

Prof. Daniel has published 110+ refereed papers. His masters' dissertation awarded second place at the XIV Latin American Contest of Master Thesis (2007), organized by the Latin American Center for Computer Studies. Papers derivated from his PhD received the IEEE Latincom 2011 Best Paper Award and an Honorable Mention at the XXIX Brazilian Symposium on Computer Networks and Distributed Systems (2011). Prof. Daniel advised 18 undergrad students, 10 MSc students, and 5 PhD students. His students received several awards, including the IEEE ISCC 2018 Best Student Paper Award and second place at the ACM SAC 2014 Student Research Competition. In 2020 he was the USP Representative on the World Cities World Class University (WC2) Network in the CyberSecurity theme. In 2022 and 2023 he was the secretary of the Internet Technical Committee (ITC), a joint committee of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the Internet Society (ISOC) that stimulates interdisciplinary technical exchange, application of state of the art communications and related technologies to the Internet infrastructure and services. Since 2024 he is the vice-chair of the ITC.

In addition to research on Computer Networks, Prof. Daniel is also dedicated to monitoring the undergraduate degree in Computer Science at USP. From 2018 to 2022 he was the coordinator of the undergraduate course and actively participated in the curriculum reform between 2011 and 2015.

Besides his academic career, Prof. Daniel Batista graduated from the Federal Center for Technological Education of Bahia, Brazil in Electronics (1997). In the last year of the Electronics course, he was an intern at IBM. After graduate he worked as a network administrator at IBM and Banco do Nordeste. Prof. Daniel is also an amateur triathlete focused on the Olympic distance.

Prof. Daniel's Curriculum Vitae is available on the Lattes Platform.
