About Me

👋 Hi! Olá! I’m Bruno, currently a CS Ph.D. Candidate at NYU Tandon School of Engineering advised by professor Damon McCoy working alongside the Cybersecurity for Democracy group. I work broadly in applications of Machine Learning/Data Science for studying large online networks.

Currently, I’m focusing on:

  • Understanding how people speak and try to avoid filtering algorithms on TikTok
  • Working on Fact Checking with LLM’s

As side/coding projects, I am also focusing on:

  • 🧑‍🏫 Mentoring students of the Data Science MBA at the University of São Paulo - I tutor “Introduction to Data Science”, “Programming for Data Science”, “Machine Learning” and “Neural Networks and Deep Learning”.

I am always interested in learning, discussing and collaborating on Cyber Security and Machine Learning research and interesting challenges - Shoot me a email ✉️ to chat!


I got my bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the Universidade de São Paulo (USP 🇧🇷 ), with a focus in Machine Learning as a Research Assistant at the Laboratory of Computational Intelligence, while also participating in many Kaggle like competitions 🏆 and co-founding a Machine Learning-Data Science research group (DATA).

In my free time I can be often be found traveling, reading sci-fi or practicing Parkour.


  • (August 2023) 🤖 I had a great time interning at Kensho as a ML NLP intern working on LLM and Zero-shot classification
  • (July 2023) I was invited to talk at NYU’s PhD Panel about the graduate experience to interested undergraduate students.
  • (March 2023) 🧑‍🏫 I was invited for two guest lecture for NYU’s Security Analytics class - “Information Visualization” and “Introduction to Data Science methods and Python tools”.
