I received my bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil) in 2011 and my master’s degree in Telecommunications from the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) in 2013. I am now a PhD student at INRS. My main research area is speech signal processing, and I am working on Environment- and quality-aware speech enhancement. I am also interested in bio-inspired algorithms applied to signal classification, pattern recognition, and other adaptive systems.
