I'm a visiting professor at IMPA. My research broadly focuses on the interplay between statistics, probability, and computation, particularly as they apply to high-dimensional Bayesian models and Monte Carlo methods. I enjoy working on both theoretical and applied projects, and find them to often illuminate each other.
Before coming to IMPA, I obtained a PhD in Statistics at Stanford University, advised by Persi Diaconis, and received a Masters in Mathematics and BSc in Economics, both from PUC-Rio, in Brazil. I also spent a quarter at Google Research and another at Facebook Reality Labs.
