According to ISI's Web of Science, on September 2004 there were about 1,200 citations to my work. According to CiteSeer in May 2005 (www.researchindex.com), there were about 2,900 citations in Internet documents (which are in general different from ISI's journal citations). A similar result is given by Google Scholar which registers more than 4,000 citations to my work. In May 2005 CiteSeer found more than 1,700 independent citations and ranked me among the 650 most cited authors in CS from a universe of more than 760 thousand authors.

Teaching Record

Teacher of the following courses (most recent first, although many were taught more than once): Design and Analysis of Algorithms, Information Retrieval, Advanced Data Structures, Bioinformatics, Introduction to Computer Programming, Vizualization Seminar, Software Project, Object Oriented Programming, Software Workshop on X-Windows, Problem Solving Seminar, Text Searching Seminar, Computer Architecture, Software Project, Data Structures, Automata Theory and Formal Languages, Design and Construction of Compilers, Information Systems, Programming Languages, Introduction to Computer Graphics, Numerical Algorithms, Digital Systems, Operating Systems, and Software Tools.

The courses on Computer Graphics (1985), Object Oriented Programming (1990), Software Workshop on X-Windows (1991), Problem Solving Seminar (1993), Visualization Seminar (1997), and Bioinformatics (2001) were incorporated to the computer engineering studies by myself, as well as the current M.Sc. curricula while being the graduate coordinator.
