Breno Dantas Cruz

Postdoc Research Associate

Breno Cruz is a postdoctoral research associate at the Laboratory for Software Design at Iowa State University. He is advised by Dr. Hridesh Rajan. His research explores the issues of programmability, efficiency, and privacy in the development and evolution of mobile and IoT applications. The overriding objective of his research is to democratize the engineering of emerging distributed applications, particularly in the edge, IoT, and cyber-physical domains. His research philosophy is that a synergy of novel system designs and state-of-the-art software engineering approaches can reconcile the often divergent priorities of end-users, app developers, and infrastructure providers. Breno holds a Ph.D. of Computer Science and Applications from Virginia Tech, a Master's of Science and Engineering degree from the University of Notre Dame, and a Bachelor’s of Software Engineering from the University of Brasília.
