About me

I am an assistant professor at Telecom-Paristech in the Signal, Statistics and Machine Learning group (S2A) which is part of the LTCI lab. My research interests include: Optimization methods for machine learning, randomized numerical linear algebra, variable metric and quasi-Newton methods, automatic differentiation (backpropagation), and more.

Short Bio

Shipped off to Brazil in 2000, where I started secondary school on a beach and became a proficient sea swimmer. This was followed by a mathematics degree at the State University of Campinas, after which I landed a job in Risk/Finance in São Paulo. In 2012 I moved to Edinburgh to pursue a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Dr. Peter Richtárik.
