Julio is an Electrical Engineer, has MSc. and Dsc. in Power Systems by COPPE/UFRJ, focusing on the application of computational techniques and modeling to electrical energy systems. He joined PSR in 2011, where he has worked in a multidisciplinary way in the areas of: analytical modeling, mainly covering optimization, probability and statistics and stochastic simulation; machine learning, covering regression and classification techniques applied to the operation of systems under uncertainty; modeling of information systems, mainly covering solutions for Big Data and the development of an object-oriented framework for the representation of electric-energy systems, which forms the basis for many of the PSR applications. Directly integrates the development teams of the SDDP, TimeSeriesLab, Coral and OptDec models, in addition to acting indirectly in supporting the development of other models and solutions in general.
