Flávia C. Delicato received her PhD from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2005 and her Doctoral Thesis was selected as one of the six best in the year of 2005 by the Brazilian Computer Society. Since 2006 she is an Associate Professor of the Department of Informatics and Applied Mathematics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil where she teaches for undergraduate and post-graduate courses, and integrates the Distributed Systems and the Software Engineering Research Groups as a researcher.

From 1995 to 2005 she worked as a System Analyst in the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro, besides teaching as a Visitor Lecturer at this same University and as an Associate Professor in the graduate course of Computer Science at a Private University (Universidade da Cidade). During the year of 2009 she has expended three months as a Visitor Researcher at the Málaga University, Spain (Departamento de Lenguajes y Ciencias de la Computación). She is currently at the University of Sydney, Australia as a visiting academic, on a sabbatical leave from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte.

She is a Researcher Fellow of the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). She has published over 60 refereed international conference and journal papers. She has worked as a reviewer of several international journals and in program committees of several Brazilian and international conferences.

She has been participating in several research projects with funding from International and Brazilian government agencies, including CNPq (National Council for Scientific and Technological Development), CAPES (Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior), ANP (Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Gás Natural e Biocombustíveis ), RNP (Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa), and Fundación Carolina (Spain).
