  • About

    I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science for Games & AI at Sheffield Hallam University (UK). My main area of research is applied artificial intelligence (https://youtu.be/Tn9IYKOakR4), more specifically, data-mining and machine learning applied to user data analysis and biometrics (face analysis, emotion prediction, keystroke, mouse and touch dynamics, fingerprint, handwritten text, signature and voice/speech). 

    Some of my ongoing projects are: medieval document analysis (https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1979841978711461); transparency in user behaviour in commercial game playing; signal processing (speech analysis) applied to medical diagnosis and neurological diseases therapy; forensics-based keystroke dynamics analysis applied to accountability concerns in social networks; mining judges’ sentences for analysing fairness; mining hard real-time network environments and investigating machine learning-based decision engines for network intrusion detection systems; and designing cheaper technological solutions for biometrics applications in different scenarios.

    I am part of the editorial board and one of the Associate Editors of the IET Biometrics and am a member of the Special Board for Information Security of the Brazilian Computer Society. 

    I have won the Newton Research Collaboration Programme Award and I have strong collaborations with the University of Kent (UK) and the University of York (UK) and have been working with them in several different projects.
    I worked as a Senior Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence at UFRN from 2012 until 2019.
    I am a FEMINIST and an activist for women in science (https://bit.ly/2kBcId5, http://tiny.cc/d9eqcz).
