Welcome to my home page!
I'm currently a fourth year graduate student in the
Computer Science Ph.D. program
. 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.

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.
