I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Alberta, Department of Computing Science, supervised by Michael Bowling and Marc G. Bellemare. My research interests lie broadly in Artificial Intelligence and particularly focus on Machine Learning/Reinforcement Learning.
I completed my M.Sc. and B.Sc. at the Department of Computer Science of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais - UFMG, one of the top five computer science departments in Brazil. My M.Sc. thesis was focused on the use of supervised learning to model players in the game Civilization IV. My supervisors were Luiz Chaimowicz and Gisele L. Pappa.
