I'm broadly interested in the intersections between Artificial Intelligence and Creativity, specifically in algorithmic music composition, generative art, and procedural content generation for games. I'm currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta, working 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 (UCSC), a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Universidade de São Paulo, and a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR).

I am co-organizing the 9th Workshop on Experimental AI in Games (EXAG), which will take place at the AIIDE 2022.
