I am an academic researcher in Interactive Technology, with emphasis in data science, machine learning, and technology for education. Currently, I work as a data scientist at Hrvatski Telekom.
My previous work experience included a post-doctoral research position at the Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence department, at Tilburg University (Netherlands), where I worked on using data science and machine learning for user profile analysis. We were particularly interested on the use of computational linguistics in data analysis, investigating how much language data use can help us understand the user.
I finished my PhD on serious games for learning as part of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate on Interactive and Cognitive Environments, having conducted my research at both the University of Genova (Italy) and TU Eindhoven (Netherlands). I hold a MSc. in Interactive Technology from the University of Tampere, Finland, and a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Advertisement from the University of Brasilia, Brazil.
My research interests include data science, machine learning, serious games, technology for learning, systems for low literacy users and technology for development (ICT4D).
