Short Biography of J. Carmelo Interlando


J. Carmelo Interlando is Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at San Diego State University.

He received the B.S. in Computational and Applied Mathematics in 1990 and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1994, both from the State University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Campinas, SP, Brazil. He received the Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Notre Dame in 2005.

He was a Research Assistant in the Department of Communications of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UNICAMP from March 1995 through June 1996. During this period he taught algebraic coding theory at the graduate level.

From July 1996 through June 2002 he was with the Department of Mathematics at the São Paulo State University (UNESP), campus of São José do Rio Preto, Brazil: There he taught graduate and undergraduate courses, supervised master's dissertations and undergraduate research projects, and served as department vice-chairman for one year.

He held a post-doctorate position in the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications at the Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy, from October 1999 through February 2001.

His research interests include algebraic number theory, construction of dense point-lattices, coding theory/modulation, and cryptography. His work has been published internationally; he has served as a referee for several journals in mathematics and electrical engineering. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Discrete Mathematical Sciences and Cryptography.
