Hi, I am Marcelo Brandalero, currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Chair for Computer Engineering at the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg. My research interests lie in computer architecture, reconfigurable systems, performance and power-efficient embedded systems and approximate computing. I have recently received the Dr. Degree from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), in Brazil. I also hold a Computer Engineer Degree from the same institution.

This is my newly-redesigned personal webpage and blog, where I'll be writing about my experiences and crazy ideas. Feel free to browse around, but notice that most of it is still under construction.

If you want to get in touch, please check the Contact page.
