I am a PhD Candidate in Machine Learning at CentraleSupélec-Université Paris-Saclay working towards safe and robust AI under the supervision of Prof. Pablo Piantanida. My PhD is supported by the BPI France through the IBM Research project AIDA: Artificial Intelligence for Digital Automation. Through my work, I hope to contribute to the betterment of society by developing responsible and safe algorithms.
In 2023, I was selected to participate in the Nordic Probabilistic AI School (ProbAI) in Trondheim, Norway. In 2022, I was awarded the MITACS Globalink scholarship for a four-month research internship at MILA and ÉTS in Montreal, QC, Canada. In 2021, I got my first first-author paper accepted at (ICLR2022).
Previously, I obtained my bachelor’s degree from the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA) in Brazil. ITA is the top-1 engineering school in Brazil with a selective admission process with an acceptance rate of 2%. There, I was involved in research projects in the field of aerospace engineering and aerodynamics theory for airplanes and rocketships being awarded a national scholarship from the CNPq for studying wavy leading edge phenomena with computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Also, I ran experiments in the wind tunnel of the ITA for the development of a sounding rocket for the 2018’s Spaceport America Cup. In 2018, I was awarded an excellence scholarship to pursue my master’s degree at ISAE-SUPAERO in Toulouse, France. There, I was selected for the Data Science and Applied Mathematics major. During my master’s, I was involved in a research project at the intersection of machine learning and communication systems leading to my first journal publication. I also did free-lance work for Liebherr Engineering in the field of data science.
As a fun side project, I co-developed promptriddle, a challenging enigma solving game on an emulated terminal with over 2000 players.
