Tarcisio Ferreira Maciel received his Bachelor (2001) and Master of Science (2003) degrees from the Federal University of Ceará (UFC), in Fortaleza, Brazil. In 1999, he studied for one year at the Technische Universität Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH), in Hamburg, Germany. From 2001 to 2004, he developed research activities by the Wireless Telecommunications Research Group (GTEL) of the Teleinformatics Engineering Department (DETI) of the UFC working in the areas of wireless communications, radio resource management, and smart antennas. From 2005 to 2008, he developed and concluded his Ph.D. studies by the Communications Engineering Lab of the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TUD), in Darmstadt, Germany, in the same areas. He held scholarships from the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Level Personnel (CAPES) during the undergraduation course, from the Ceará State Foundation for Scientific and Technological Support (FUNCAP) during his M.Sc. course, and from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and CAPES during his Ph.D. studies. In 2009, he became professor at UFC - Sobral Campus, in Sobral, where he worked as Adjoint Professor I for one year by the Computer Engineering course. In 2010, he became Adjoint Professor I of the Center of Technology (CT) at UFC - Pici Campus, in Fortaleza. In 2015, he moved to the Teleinformatics Engineering Department (DETI) of UFC, where he is currently Associate Professor I. He is also since 2009 permanent member of the Teleinformatics Engineering Post-Graduation Program (PPGETI) at UFC and is a researcher by GTEL, where he develops research activities related to 4th and 5th generation wireless communication systems. His research interests include radio resource allocation, linear and nonlinear optimization, machine intelligence, and signal processing.
