Digital Solutions
Data Visualization
I'm a design researcher in the Visual Analytics & Insights group at IBM Research Brazil.
With a solid background on strategic design methodologies such as Design Thinking and extensive experience building technological assets, I create solutions based on user-centered investigation and lean prototyping.

My experience working with applied research allows me to set up bridges between academic
and corporate thinking, as well as connecting technology and interface design.
