Welcome to my home page! I'm currently a fourth year graduate student in the Computer Science Ph.D. program at Rutgers. I was born in Brazil, where I received my B.Sc. from Universidade Federal de Lavras and my M.Sc. from Universidade Federal Fluminense, all in Computer Science.

Research My research interests are in machine learning (ensembles, unsupervised, and semi-supervised learning), efficient algorithms and data structures, and optimization (especially real-world problems).

Currently, I'm doing research on efficient variational algorithms for criterion function minimization in unsupervised learning, under the supervision of Prof. Casimir Kulikowski and Dr. Ilya Muchnik.
