Dr. Nunes completed her undergraduate studies in Computer Science at UFRGS (2006), with highest honours, and also received the Prêmio Destaque Universitário em Informática (SEPRORGS) and Homenagem Aluno Destaque (Brazilian Computer Society) awards. She obtained her Master's (2009) and Doctor's (2012) degree in Informatics from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). Her phd was in cooperation with King's College London (UK), under a sandwich Ph.D. programme of one year, and with University of Waterloo (Canada), with three three-month research visits. In 2008, she received the Google Women in Technology Award (Google). She was also a post-doc researcher at PUC-Rio in the Software Engineering Laboratory (LES) (2012), and worked as a software developer from 2005 to 2007. Dr. Nunes is an alumni of the Alexander von Humboldt foundation.
