About me

Currently, I am a PhD student at NYU Tandon School of Engineering under the supervision of Professor Claudio Silva. I hold a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Sao Paulo State University (2012) and a Masters in Computer Science from University of Sao Paulo (2015), Brazil.

I come from Bauru, a major urban and cultural center of the state of Sao Paulo. In 2012, I moved to Sao Carlos to pursue my Masters degree, and in 2015, I moved to Brooklyn to do my PhD.

In my free time, I like to sketch and play the piano.

Research

My research interests are mainly in the area of Information Visualization and its applications, including Explainable AI, Machine Learning, Sports Analytics and Music Information Retrieval. Currently, I am working on the following projects:

  • Data-Driven Discovery of Models: Our goal is to enable domain experts (non data scientists) to build, curate and deploy machine learning models. I am currently working on how to explain and compare trained models using visualization.

  • Baseball Analytics: The goal of this project is to provide a deeper understanding of the game to fans, managers and coaches. Currently, I am building visualizations for the exploration of baseball tracking and statistics data.
