I am a first year PhD candidate at Mila and Université de Montréal, supervised by Simon Lacoste-Julien. I am broadly interested in causal inference, and also curious about multi-agent learning since it may provide bridges between machine learning and my MSc thesis on evolution of cooperation.
I have completed my MSc in Computer Engineering in Lisbon at Instituto Superior Técnico, under the supervision of Francisco Santos and Fernando Santos. During this period I used evolutionary game theory to study how reward and punishment impact cooperation in a collective risk dilemma.
In between my MSc and my PhD I spent three years working with André Martins on machine translation, both at Unbabel and Instituto Superior Técnico. This included a 4-month research visit to NYU under the supervision of Kyunghyun Cho.
In a previous life I completed a bachelor on Business Management, and wore a suit and tie at McKinsey & Co for a summer. I have also studied jazz guitar, including two years as a full-time student.
