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.
