Biography

I am a Research Assistant and Doctoral Candidate at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. Before, I was a Research Assistant at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My research interests are mainly in the area of scientific data management, including provenance management and analytics, large-scale data analysis, reproducibility, and data visualization. I have a BE in Computer and Information Engineering from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
