I am a Data Science Institute (DSI) postdoctoral fellow affiliated with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Vanderbilt University. My research aims to investigate how humans or other intelligent agents make meaningful decisions, and how to enhance human-technology partnerships through the development of AI systems that promote inclusion and assist people. My research methods focus on combining cognitively inspired computational approaches with reinforcement learning (RL) techniques.
I am a member of the AIVAS lab (Artificial Intelligence and Visual Analogical Systems), the Vanderbilt Initiative in Data-intensive Astrophysics (VIDA), and the Frist Center for Autism and Innovation.
I earned my Ph.D. degree and my Master’s in Sciences (Artificial Intelligence) from the Aeronautics Institute of Technology (ITA, Brazil), AIRGroup (Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Group); and my Bachelor’s and Licentiate’s degree in Philosophy (USP, University of São Paulo).
