I am a fourth year PhD candidate working with Daniel Epstein and Gillian Hayes in the Informatics department at the University of California, Irvine.

I study how to leverage people’s discovery and understanding of personal data through the use of multiple devices to help manage their health and wellbeing, be individually or collaboratively in family settings.

I previously acquired a M.Sc. and B.S. in Computer Science from Universidade Federal do Pará, being advised by Professors Eduardo Cerqueira and Roberto Samarone.

Outside of research I am an avid reader of all things fantasy and sci-fi. I also like to think I have mastered the chips to dip ratio when preping my snacks.
