Biographical Information

I have a mix of academic and industrial background and experience. After earning my Bachelor degree in Computer Science in 1991, I worked in Salvador until 1997, both as a consultant in different IT companies and as an Assistant Professor in the Catholic University and Substitute Professor in the Federal University of Bahia. From 1998 to 2002, I lived in Rio de Janeiro, where I earned a M. Sc. in Systems Engineering and Computer Science from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, having worked in the Petrobrás Research Center and as an Assistant Professor in the Estácio de Sá University. From 2002 to 2012, I lived in Barcelona, where I earned a M. Sc. in Cognitive Science and Language from the University of Barcelona, and worked as a research software engineer in the Computational Linguistics Group (GLICOM) of the Pompeu Fabra University, and as the manager of the Advanced Development Group of Barcelona Media Foundation (now part of Eurecat research center). From 2012 to 2015, I lived once again in Salvador, working in different IT companies, and as an Assistant Professor in the Catholic University of Salvador. Since October 2015, I have been a member of the UKP Lab at TU Darmstadt.

Projects

I currently work as a research software engineer in the Darmstadt Knowledge Processing Software Repository Project (DKPro), a collection of Natural Language Processing (NLP) software components based on the Apache UIMA framework. I am also involved in the research of how Deep Leaning methods and tools can be used to leverage NLP tasks and experiments.

In the past, I have participated in many research projects, such as ALLES, Autolearn and ICE3, e-learning platforms for language learning; i3media, a large Spanish-funded project for the development of intelligent multimedia contents; El Corrector de Català, an open source, multiplatform corrector of Catalan texts; and MeLLANGE (Multilingual eLearning in LANGuage Engineering), an EU-funded project providing personalized tools for translators and language professionals.
