I’m a postdoctoral associate at the Computer Science Department of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil). I received my Ph.D. in March of 2020 from the Graduate Programme in Electrical Engineering of the same university under the supervision of Luis A. Aguirre and Thomas B. Schön. I was hosted under Thomas supervision during one year of my Ph.D. as a visiting researcher at Uppsala University (Sweden) in the system and control division.

My current research interests lay in the intersection of machine learning, system theory and signal processing. I am interested in using system theory and signal processing for better understanding deep neural networks and black box machine learning algorithms. But, also, in studying the application of deep neural networks in areas dominated by classical signal processing and control tools, such as the identification of electromechanical systems and the automated analysis of the electrocardiogram. I am also a member of Scipy core development team, having contributed to optimization and signal processing packages.
