Home: Welcome

I am a physicist with experience in building models to explain small- and large-scale phenomena in the universe. I have worked on the interplay between particle physics and cosmology, learning from the early universe how to build and interpret our models of particle physics.


I am currently seeking ways to explore machine learning using concepts and techniques inspired by theoretical physics. I am particularly intrigued about what artificial intelligence can teach us about nature and how it can change the way we do science. 



I am a theoretical physicist interested in machine learning. I was a postdoctoral researcher at the ICTP in Trieste (2019-2021) and at DESY Hamburg (2016-2019). Previously, I completed my PhD at the Institute of Physics of the University of São Paulo in Brazil, where I was advised by Gustavo Burdman. While in graduate school I had the opportunity to be a long-term visitor in different institutions. I visited the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT (hosted by Jesse Thaler) and the DESY Theory Group in Hamburg (hosted by Géraldine Servant).
