I'm a post-doc researcher at the Philosophy Department of the University of Amsterdam, supervised by prof. dr. Arianna Betti. I'm also affiliated to the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC), an interdisciplinary research institute that resorts under both the humanities and the science departments at the University of Amsterdam. My research interests are on the application of ontologies in both philosophical and computational senses and on the use of Semantic Web Framework in order to support answering complex questions about a certain domain. Currently I'm investigating how to use the aforementioned methods to integrate several datasets related to the Dutch Golden Age in order to support humanities researchers to answer complex research questions within the project Golden Agents funded by the NWO.
My PhD thesis, concluded in 2017, is entitled "Knowledge Representation for Clinical Guidelines, with applications to Multimorbidity Analysis and Literature Search". It was conducted at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) in the [Knowlegde Representation and Reasoning Group (KR&R)](http://krr.cs.vu.nl/) under the supervision of dr. [Annette ten Teije](http://www.cs.vu.nl/~annette) and prof. dr. [Frank van Harmelen](http://www.cs.vu.nl/~frankh), and in collaboration with the [Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST)](http://www.list.lu/), where I was supervised by dr. [Cedric Pruski](http://www.santec.lu/team/pruski) and dr. [Marcos da Silveira](http://www.santec.lu/team/marcos.dasilveira). The problem investigated is on Knowledge Representation for Clinical Guidelines to support complex tasks such as identifying interactions among medical recommendations and also querying medical publications for updating a clinical guideline.
I received the Bachelor in Computer Science degree in 2008 from the Federal University of Espirito Santo (Vitoria, Brazil) and the Master in Informatics degree in 2011 from the same institution. My master thesis is entitled "A study of mapping ontology from OntoUML Language to OWL language: Approaches for representing temporal information" (in portuguese). It was supervised by dr. [Giancarlo Guizzardi](http://nemo.inf.ufes.br/gguizzardi) and developed in the [Ontology and Conceptual Modelling Research Group (NEMO)](http://nemo.inf.ufes.br/) where I'm currently a collaborator.
