I have been a tenure-track Adjunct Professor (*Professor Adjunto A*) at the Department of Computer Science of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro since August 2018.

My main research interests are

- set theory, especially descriptive set theory;
- graph theory;
- computability theory, especially as it relates to descriptive set theory;
- applications of games in math.

In April of 2018, I finished my PhD at the ILLC (University of Amsterdam), supervised by Benedikt Löwe.
In my thesis *Games for functions: Baire classes, Weihrauch degrees, transfinite computations, and ranks* I studied several aspects of infinite games used to characterize classes of functions in descriptive set theory.

Prior to that,

- In August of 2013, I finished an MSc
*cum laude*, also at the ILLC (University of Amsterdam) under the supervision of Benedikt Löwe. In my dissertation*Game characterizations of function classes and Weihrauch degrees*I studied some preliminary aspects of the topic I then studied in my PhD. - In February of 2011, I finished an MSc at the Systems and Computer Engineering Program of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, supervised by Márcia R. Cerioli and Petrucio Viana. In my dissertation
*Decomposição por cliques maximais e subgrafos proibidos para grafos de caminho*I studied abstract and algorithmic aspects of*definitions by forbiddance*in graph theory and related areas. This dissertation was selected as one of the ten best master's dissertations in computer science defended in Brazil in 2011. - In 2009, I finished a BSc in math at the Federal Fluminense University. For the latter two years of my BSc studies, I was an undergraduate researcher under the supervisition of Petrucio Viana. The resulting work titled
*Independência dos axiomas de Dedekind-Peano*, dealing with some aspects of the independence (or lack thereof) of the usual (second-order) axioms for natural numbers was awarded the prize of best undergraduate research done at the Federal Fluminense University in 2008, in the area of exact sciences.
