Hi there! 👋

I’m an MSc student in Mathematical Modeling at the School of Applied Mathematics at Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and I’m actively seeking PhD opportunities.

Check my publications at AISTATS and TVCG!

I hold a BSc in Applied Mathematics at FGV (2021) and I’m a member of the Visual Data Science Lab at FGV (since 2020), where I develop research in NLP and XAI. In 2022, I visited the Vision, Language, and Learning Lab at Rice University, Houston, to develop research ideas in XAI. I also have experience in projects applying ML, NLP, XAI, and Data Visualization in legal problems.

Research interests:

  • Machine Learning (ML)
  • Natural Language Processing (NLP)
  • Explainable AI (XAI)


Jan 30, 2024 I presented a poster at the Tropical Probabilistic AI School 2024 about my MSc work on exploring human annotations to improve NLP model explanations (under review).
Jul 10, 2023 I will attend CNMAC 2023 in Bonito, MS, Brazil. CNMAC is one of the most important applied mathematics events in Latin America.
May 3, 2023 LegalVis was finally published in an issue of TVCG!
