After obtaining his undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering in 1984 at Polythecnic School, University of São Paulo (EPUSP), Dr. Jaime Simão Sichman worked from 1984 to 1989 as a hardware and software designer at engineering companies. During this period, he was involved with several design activities, such as a simulator for the Navy Ministry, an emulator for the São Paulo Subway Company, and some automation projects for energy companies of São Paulo State, such as ELETROPAULO and CESP.

His academic experience began in 1988, when he was engaged as a research assistant at EPUSP. Since then he has taught several undergraduate courses, both in the digital hardware and software areas, as well as graduate and specialty courses for engineers in the artificial intelligence and multi-agent systems domais.

He obtained his MSc degree in Electrical Engineering from EPUSP in 1991, in the Distributed Artificial Intelligence field, under the supervision of Prof. Eleri Cardozo. His MSc dissertation concerned the design of a monitoring facility for an object-oriented distributed problem solving kernel.

From September 1991 to October 1995, he was a PhD student at the LIFIA laboratory, at INPG, Grenoble, France. He worked in the MAGMA group, headed by Dr. Yves Demazeau, in the field of Multi-Agent Systems. Part of his PhD studies were also carried out in the PSCS group of the Istituto di Psicologia del CNR, Rome, Italy, in the team headed by Dr. Cristiano Castelfranchi. He obtained his PhD degree in Computer Engineering in 1995. His thesis is about social reasoning in multi-agent systems.

Currently, he is a lecturer in the Computer Engineering Department of EPUSP, where he is also the coordinator for graduate studies in Computer Engineering.
