Lucas N. Ferreira


I'm an Assistant Professor at the Universidade Federal de Viçosa, working on the intersections between Artificial Intelligence and Creativity, specifically in Generative AI for Music Generation and Procedural Content Generation in Games. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta, where I worked on controlling generative deep learning models to compose music with a given emotion. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Santa Cruz, a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Universidade de São Paulo, and a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Universidade Federal do Paraná.
