I work to position Data and AI at the core of business and operations aiming to deliver value to customers and society.

I am a Data & AI Solution Architect and Research Leader with client-face experience, working to place Computational Intelligence at the core of business and operations.

I am working with IBM in projects around Enterprise AI and Distributed AI focusing on the Telco industry. I am a former Director of Research with Samsung were I promoted a research agenda around Human-centered IoT and Intelligent Mobile Services.

I hold a PhD in Computer Sciences from Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and M.Sc. and B.Sc. in Computer Sciences from UFSC, Brazil.


My research is motivated by the following overreaching question:

How to understand, anticipate, and promote Artificial Intelligence in organizations and society, promoting its impact on how people think, work, and collaborate?

I believe that  advancing Artificial Intelligence in organizations and society demand new ways to understand and influence information flows, goal-driven collaboration, architectures for insight generation, and AI-centric operational models.
