I’m a PhD candidate in Music Technology at McGill University. I work at the Input Devices and Music Interaction Laboratory, under the supervision of Marcelo M. Wanderley and Stéphane Huot. I have a background on Computer Science, with a BSc (2009) and an MSc (2013) at CIn-UFPE, supervised by Geber Ramalho.
My research concerns Human-Computer Interaction applied to artistic creative practice. I’m interested in: (1) designing novel interface technology to empower artistic practice; and (2) understanding how these artists embody and express themselves through computational tools. I publish my research on international venues, such as NIME and IEEE VL/HCC. I’m also a computational artist (a.k.a. Jeraman), working with speculative software design. My work has received some notable awards in Brazil, such as the Prêmio Sergio Motta de Arte e Tecnologia.
Before starting my PhD, I was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at UAG-UFRPE (2013). I proudly contributed to the Laboratorio de Computação e Arte (LaboCA, 2010-2012) and the Batebit (2013-2015).
