Caio Batista de Melo

Ph.D. Candidate / Instructor

UC Irvine

Hello there :)

My name is Caio, and I’m a 4th-year PhD Candidate in Computer Science at UC Irvine. I greatly enjoy teaching and interacting with students in the classroom. After working as a TA a bunch of times, I’m now fortunate to have the opportunity to be the instructor of record on my own course! You can find out more on my teaching page.

On the research front, I’m working with Prof. Nikil Dutt in the Information Processing Factory project, where my research focuses on emergent behaviors and fault-detection of systems. From a big picure view, I’m exploring how we can enable self-driving vehicles to detect unexpected situations, and decice how to best react to those. You can see a little more about my research here.

Previous to joining UCI, I attended the University of Brasília, in Brazil, where I got a B.Sc. and an M.Sc. in Computer Science. During that time, I worked with Prof. Genaína Rodrigues researching dependable distributed systems, more specifically, implied scenarios.

On my free time I like to watch movies, play videogames, and sometimes develop small apps. You can find more about my hobbies on my other page.

Feel free to shoot me an email if you want to get in touch. You can also find other ways to reach me at the bottom of this page.
