I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Computer Vision at the University of Campinas (Unicamp), with my studies spanning from 2023 to 2025. My academic foundation was laid at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. During my tenure at PUC-Rio, I was distinguished by my participation in the Apple Developer Academy Program, through which I delved into the development of applications leveraging machine learning technologies.
In addition to my academic endeavors, I held the position of President of the IEEE chapter at PUC-Rio from 2016 to 2020, demonstrating leadership and commitment to the engineering community. My professional experience includes a significant tenure at the Cyberlabs Research Laboratory, where I focused on pioneering research in image and voice recognition.
My contributions to the field of Artificial Intelligence and Ethics have been recognized through my roles as a columnist for MIT Technology Review Brasil and UOL Tilt, along with contributions to esteemed publications such as Canal Futuro, Gizmodo, and Folha de São Paulo. Since 2021, I have been an integral part of the research team at the Center for Technology and Society at FGVRio Law School, focusing on critical issues such as cybersecurity and algorithmic justice.
My work and dedication to the field have been acknowledged through several accolades: I was named one of the 100 most influential women researchers in AI Ethics globally in 2020, recognized in Forbes' under 30 list by MIT in 2021, and awarded the Sabia Award by the Cambridge Education department in 2022 for my undergraduate research on "Algorithmic Racism in Facial Recognition". Additionally, the Rio de Janeiro Women's Secretariat honored me with the Nilse da Silveira award in 2022, acknowledging me as a leading female figure in technology.
I have also engaged in consultancy roles for prestigious organizations such as the United Nations, Superior Electoral Court, UNDP, and the Presidency of the Brazilian Government, contributing to councils focused on social, sustainable, and economic development.
Beyond my professional and academic pursuits, I am dedicated to scientific dissemination, evidenced by my involvement in projects like Computação sem Cao, funded by Serrapilheira from 2018 to 2020, and the Ogunhe Podcast. In 2020, I founded the Instituto da Hora, a research institute committed to advancing digital rights in Brazil, further cementing my role as a key contributor to the field of technology and society.
