I am a PhD student at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and working at Idiap Research Institute, both located in the French speaking part of Switzerland. At Idiap, I work as research assistant under the supervision of Ronan Collobert. During my PhD, I had the chance to collaborate closely with some folks from Facebook AI Research.

Previously, I graduated with a Msc in Image and Signal Processing from Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA Lyon), France. I am originally from sunny Fortaleza, in Brazil.

Research Interests


I have a broad interest in the domains of computer vision, machine learning and artificial intelligence in general. During my PhD, I am studying large-scale high level computer vision problems, such as object and scene classification, recognition and segmentation. My interest are in scalable algorithms that require the least possible amount of feature engineering.
