Short Biography

I'm a full-time Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) and a student intern at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). In the last few years, I published papers about data-driven knowledge discovery and data mining techniques on semi-structured data. Nowadays, I'm working on the understanding of phenomena related to human mobility and on geometric deep learning techniques on multidimensional graph-like data. My primary expertise is in the complex networks field, and lately, after the arising of geometric deep learning, I'm also working on the artificial intelligence field. My plan for the future is to find a way to combine both areas in one.
