I received my Ph.D. degree in June 2018 from the Computer Science Department at MIT, where I was advised by Professor Wojciech Matusik. During my PhD, I spent time at Columbia University working with Professor Eitan Grinspun, and, at MIT, I also worked closely with Daniela Rus, developing computational tools for robot design. Before starting my PhD, I obtained a Master's in Mathematics from IMPA, where I worked with Professor Luiz Velho and a Bachelor in Electronics Engineering from UFRJ, where I worked with Professor Eduardo da Silva.
