Laboratório Nacional de Computação Científica

The place where I spend a great deal of my time.

I am a postdoctoral researcher at LNCC's Quantum Computing Group group in Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil under the supervision of Professor Renato Portugal. I am interested in the possibilities brought upon by quantum computation. My research mostly focuses on questions surrounding the power of quantum computation, quantum walks, quantum graph search, quantum complexity. I am also interested in questions regarding how to map Artificial Intelligence concepts into a quantum context, from performing classical tree search, applying heuristics, graph transversal techniques and alternative search methods based on quantum space decomposition. I obtained my PhD at Instituto Superior Técnico, Portugal under the supervision of Professor Andreas Wichert in the context of these activities.

I will use this website as a means of showing the present state of my research. I hope you find this website useful. You can find more of my work (when released) in the Publications section.
