Graduate Student in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics
at La Sapienza

I am a master's student in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at La Sapienza, in Rome. I am currently looking for research opportunities mainly involved with the investigation of training dynamics of neural networks and their theoretical guarantees.

Please feel free to reach me via any of the digital mediums here available. Due the pandemic, I continued my studies from Brazil, and now I’m based in Toronto. My favorite activities are discovering new genres of music and running, usually at the same time 😃
