Welcome to my web page!

I am a Data Scientist at Nokia Technologies. I joined Nokia after receiving a PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where I was advised by Prof. Matthew Turk. Prior to starting my doctoral studies, I got my BSc and MSc degrees, also in Computer Science, from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. My interests lie in areas that deal with processing of visual information, such as computer vision, image processing and computer graphics, as well as applied machine learning.
