I'm currently a researcher in the Human Machine Interfaces lab at Huawei Canada, where I have worked on product-driven research on multimodal interaction, natural user interfaces, and human factors in semi-autonomous driving. I received my PhD in Computer Science from Ontario Tech University, supervised by Dr. Christopher Collins. During my PhD, which was fully funded by CAPES (Brazil), I investigated perceptual and statistical issues that influence the effectiveness of data plots.
