Hi there! 👋

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

I hold a BSc in Applied Mathematics at FGV EMAp (2021) and I’m a member of the Visual Data Science Lab of FGV EMAp (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 machine learning, NLP, XAI, and data visualization in legal problems.

Research interests:

  • Machine learning
  • Natural language processing
  • Explainable artificial intelligence


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!
Apr 27, 2023 Distill n’ Explain was presented at AISTATS 2023, in Valencia, Spain!
