I am a Research Scientist at IBM Research AI. My main research focus is on inventing and improving machine learning (ML) algorithms that are suitable for natural language processing (NLP). I have published close to 50 papers in indexed peer reviewed conferences and journals.
I joined IBM Research in early 2012 as a research scientist in IBM Research - Brazil lab. I moved to Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Sep. 2015. Before joining IBM, I worked for two and a half years as an Assistant Professor at University of Fortaleza, in Ceará, Brazil. I finished my PhD in Computer Science in 2009 at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro.
