Biography

I am a Civil Engineer (2015), Master of Science (2018) and PhD Student on Water Resources and Environmental Sanitation at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). I research on the Hidroenvironmental Applications of Artificial Neural Networks (AHRNA) research group on UFRGS, and currently work on the analysis of Natural Hazards (especially landslides) susceptibility and risk using Artificial Intelligence methods, including but not limited to Artificial Neural Networks. I find Machine Learning methods fascinating and still underrepresented in engineering research. Most of my research is based in Remote Sensing products and GIS techniques. I am a coding enthusiast and have coded scientifically for almost a decade, having used many different languages across these years. I also like to use and to support the use of open-source software.
