Prof. Azevedo has a PhD in Applied Physics (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil 1997). During his PhD he worked under supervision of Prof. Sung-Hou Kim (University of California, Berkeley), on a split PhD program with a fellowship from Brazilian Research Council (CNPq)(1993-1996). His PhD was about the structure Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 2 (De Azevedo Jr. et al., 1996). His research interests are focused on application of computer simulations to analyze protein-ligand interactions. He is also interested in the development of biological inspired computing and application of these algorithms to molecular docking simulations, protein-ligand interactions and other biological problems. He published over 150 scientific papers about protein structures and computer simulation methods applied to the study of biological systems (H-index: 35). These publications have over 4000 citations. He is regional editor for South and Central America for Current Drug Targets (ISSN: 1389-4501), member of the editorial board of Current Bioinformatics (ISSN: 1574-8936).
