Bio & Interests

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at CSIRO, Australia. I am currently working on brain image segmentation collaborating with Dr Olivier Salvado, Dr Jurgen Fripp, Dr Sam Burnham, and Dr Pierrick Bourgeat. Previously, I was a PhD. candidate in Computer Science at the Australian National University (ANU), under the supervision of PhD. Basura Fernando, PhD. Anoop Cherian and Prof. Stephen Gould. I was also associated with the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV).

Before joining ANU, I graduated from University of Pernambuco (UPE), Brazil, with a Bachelor of Computer Engineering in August 2014. In 2013, i received a “Science Without Border” Scholarship from CNPQ, Brazil to study as an exchange student in the B.Sc. Computer Science at the Australian National University (ANU), Australia.

I have a broad interest in Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning, and its applications. While I spent most of my PhD. working on problems related to visual recognition with minimal human supervision, I’m currently working on brain image segmentation. My goal is to design and build systems that can efficiently extract meaningful interpretations from visual data.
