I am a (postdoctoral) research associate at Imperial College London, in the Computational Logic and Argumentation group led by Francesca Toni. I have also completed my PhD here, with my thesis on “Non-monotonicity in Case-Based Reasoning and Explanations with Applications to Legal Reasoning”.

Previously, I have done my MSc in Systems and Computer Engineering (2018) at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), with Gerson Zaverucha, co-supervised by Alexandre Rademaker, in a joint project with IBM Research Brazil, during my internship there. I also hold a Bachelor’s in Applied Mathematics from Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV) and a Bachelor’s in Law from the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ). I am also a lawyer (in Brazil, and - very likely - not your lawyer).

My main research interests are on computational and mathematical methods to law, in particular AI and law, but also more broadly in the topics of argumentation, reasoning, natural language processing, and explainable AI.

My list of publications is available at ORCID and DBLP.
