Hello there! I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in Computer Science and Applications at Virginia Tech, a member of the 3D Interaction Group and of the Center for Human-Computer Interaction. My work is advised by Dr. Doug Bowman. I am also a Master of Computer Science and Bachelor of Computer Engineering, both degrees obtained at PUCRS, with terms abroad at Illinois Tech, Duke University, and Virginia Tech.
My expertise area is Virtual and Augmented Reality within the scope of 3D User Interfaces. Some specific research interests include how to use augmented reality for improving productivity on real-world tasks, how to enhance the process of content creation through increased immersion, and how to increase the public’s engagement and interest through interactive technologies.
A few years ago I created a research design Word document that helps researchers to organize how they think about their new projects – this got very popular in my group and university. You can download the file here: Research Design
