Here follows a brief summary of my CV. For a highly detailed CV, please follow this link.


I'm a PhD candidate in Computer Science at UFMG, working with Prof. Dr. Luiz Chaimowicz. We are investigating strategic reasoning in large-scale zero-sum games (more detail here).

I'm also working as a Adjunct Lecturer at UFRGS (the term refers to a lecturer for undergrad-level classes with a temporary contract). It's been so much fun! :)

In the recent past, I've pursued my MsC student in Computer Science at UFRGS, working with Prof. Dr. Ana Bazzan. We performed research in the topic of multiagent systems to traffic and transportation: reinforcement learning for route choice, a multiagent based road pricing scheme and the analysis of the impact of a group of cheating agents in inter-vehicular communication scenarios.
