Postdoctoral Research Assistant
PaccanaroLab
Fundação Getúlio Vargas


I work on Computational Biology. Specifically, I focus on Protein Function Prediction, and have collaborated in the development of automatic annotation algorithms and functional databases such as S2F and ICRep.

In addition to Computational Biology, I am interested in the development and adoption of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, especially when it helps combating climate change.

Academic stuff

I got a PhD in Computer Science at Royal Holloway, University of London specialising in Computational Biology. Before that, I graduated from Universidad Católica "Nuestra Señora de la Asunción" with an Engineering degree in Computer Science, specialising in many-objective optimisation using the Particle Swarm meta-heuristic.
