New personal website -- here

I am a Brazilian (from Belo Horizonte, not Sao Paulo nor Rio) living and doing my PhD in Vienna, at TUWien.

My main interest is making information retrieval systems more intelligent, dealing with context information. For my PhD, I am researching how to incorporate the concepts of readability (how adaptable a text is to a person) and trustability (can you trust what you read?) into search engines (e.g. khresmoi).

In my spare time I try to learn some German. I also enjoy cooking, swimming and trying some challenges on Kaggle.

Hey, did I mention that you can find my personal webpage here?
