Daniel Schwabe is a Professor at the Department of Informatics, Catholic University in Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), since 1981. His doctoral dissertation focused on formal specification and verification protocols of the Internet, which uncovered a bug in TCP that exists to this day. He has advised over 70 Masters and PhD dissertations and theses. In the 80s, Prof. Schwabe worked on knowledge-based systems, and was responsible for the design and development of the first such systems in Brazil, notably in the medical and legal areas.
