About me

I'm a computer scientist with 9 years of experience in academia and industry. Currently, I work as Artificial Intelligence Engineer at Continental Engineering Services. I obtained my PhD at LAAS/CNRS, in Toulouse France, which I worked for the European project ETN-SAS in the intersection of three domains: computer vision, safe AI, and autonomous vehicles. Before it, I obtained a master’s degree in Systems Engineering and Computing at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (2018), working with machine learning (ML) applied to dynamic environments. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro (2014).

A list of my publications is available at Google Scholar or Research gate.
