I’m a Computer Science PhD student at the University of Toronto, working with Fanny Chevalier and Michael Brudno. My thesis research is about supporting healthcare workers study and navigate text content in large, complex patient records.
My field of expertise is human-data interaction (i.e., human-computer interaction (HCI) and data visualization) with a special interest in text visualization (i.e., visual strategies to help navigate and make sense of large text collections). I also have an extensive background in applied research, having worked on a wide range of projects from engineering and medicine to arts & design, education and games, both in academia and in industry.
Before joining UofT, I was a Research Software Engineer at IBM Research - Brazil (2012-2015) working under Renato Cerqueira as part of the Natural Resources group. I have a Masters degree from the University of Calgary (2009-2011), working under Mario Costa Sousa and Ehud Sharlin. During my PhD I have also undertaken several research internships, at Microsoft Research, Adobe Research and Autodesk Research.
I will be on the job market starting Summer 2022.
