About Me

I am a PhD student at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (FCUL), conducting research at LASIGE. I am supervised by Professor Catia Pesquita from FCUL and Dr Ernesto Jiménez-Ruiz Lecturer of Artificial Intelligence at School of Science & Technology of City, University of London .

I am interested in shortening the gap between artificial nets and their biological counterparts, currently my research focuses on using Neuro-Symbolic AI to improve Knowledge Graph Alignment.

I have previously conducted research that focused on using deep reinforcement learning approaches to improve algorithms for n-way data analysis.

For a more thorough and structured description of my work you may contact me and request my CV.


Research Interests

I am currently mainly interested Neuro-Symbolic AI but my interests expand to all things deep & reinforcement learning.

My interest go much further than these topics, so if you would like to collaborate on any problem that I might be of use, feel free to contact me.
