Adarley Luiz Grando Gilho
Country of Origin
What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
I am participating in an exchange program at the University at Albany, paid for by the Brazilian Government. An internship/research is part of the program and I was looking for a good IT organization to improve my skills when I found CTG. Helping CTG's Web Team seemed like a unique experience for me, since web development has always been a subject of big interest and I was looking forward to enhance my skills.
What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
I was an undergraduate student at the University of Brasília, Brazil. I’ve participated on small projects and had relevant course work in the computer science field.
What are your plans/goals for the future?
After the completion of my exchange program at the University at Albany, I will go back to Brazil to finish my major at University of Brasília and graduate. After that I will continue my studies and get my Masters degree, perhaps abroad.
How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
From the research I am doing for CTG’s Web Team I am learning new things that will certainly help me professionally in the future. Having the experience of working at an American IT organization is also going to open new doors and expand my horizons.
