I am a Ph.D. student at EPFL working with Robert West. My research draws on a diverse methodological toolkit to characterize troublesome online phenomena and to assess how moderation policies and recommendation algorithms can be leveraged to improve our online information ecosystem. I was born and raised in Brazil, where I attended the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG). You can read more about my research and check the extensive media coverage it has received on my personal website here.
