Biography of J. Carmelo Interlando

J.
Carmelo Interlando is an Associate Professor 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 an
Assistant Professor in the Department
of Mathematics at the São Paulo State
University (UNESP), campus of São José do Rio Preto,
Brazil. 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 Dipartimento di Elettronica at
the Politecnico di
Torino, Turin, Italy, from October 1999 through February 2001. From 2002 to
2005, he was a teaching assistant in the Department of Mathematics at the
University of Notre Dame.

Dr. Interlando's
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.
