I am a PhD student at Intelligent Systems and Networks Group, under supervision of Prof. Jeremy V. Pitt and Dr. Deniz Gunduz. My current main research focus is in Intelligent Systems, applied to multi-agent systems, self-organisation, computational social science and collective intelligence.

I received my Eng and Msc degrees in Computer Engineering from University of Campinas - Brazil. During my Master's studies, I worked with applying machine learning for Social Network Analysis and in the investigation of using social information to predict behaviour in Complex Systems.

My research interests include Socially Inspired Computing, Machine Learning, Multi-Agent Systems, Distributed Intelligence, Social Network Analysis and Complex Systems.
