I am a postdoc at Aalto University, working with Vikas Garg and Samuel Kaski. I coordinate the FCAI (Finnish Center for AI) team on drug design, where we focus on combining deep learning tools and human-expert knowledge for drug discovery. More broadly, my research interests lie in advancing machine learning to deal with structured data such as graphs and sequences.
Previously, I was a postdoc at Cornell University working on deep learning under Kilian Weinberger. I am also associated with the CS department of the Federal Institute of Ceara/Brazil (on leave).
You can find my full CV here.
As for my hobbies, I enjoy practicing jiu-jitsu (blue-belt), taking photos, and playing the guitar. I also strongly roost for Palmeiras (a Brazilian soccer team). Besides that, you may find me either reading psychology books or hanging out with friends or family.
