I am a Lead Data Scientist at CI&T, focused in the transformation of companies' and customers' digital experiences, by leveraging large structured and unstructured datasets using Data Science technologies like Machine Learning, Big Data and Analytics. I am pursuing a Phd. (last year) at Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica - ITA, researching about Deep Learning and Recommender Systems. A software engineer with field experience since 2002, I regularly contribute to the software and ML community with blog posts, open-source projects, scientific articles, and speaks at international industry and academic conferences. I am also a certified Google Data Engineer, and have designed and implemented ML solutions (e.g. Recommender Systems, NLP, Computer Vision) in GCP since 2014.
