I graduated in Computer Engineering at the University of São Paulo, Brazil. I also attended the masters programme in Computer Science at the Computer Science and Mathematics Institute of USP. There, I worked at the Interinstitutional Center for R&D in Computational Linguistics, dealing with text classification applied to automatic detection of language-impairing dementias.
