Hi, I'm Klerisson.

I’m a PhD student in Computer Science at Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU) - Brazil, mostly studying Software Engineering, advised by Marcelo Maia. I earned my B.S. in Information Systems, specializing in Information Retrieval, from State University of Montes Claros, Brazil.

After receiving my Master degree in Computer Science from UFU, I spent a period in industry working as software engineer at Scopus, Everis and eWave. With one year as mobile application developer at IndiaNIC in India.

Then, in August 2014 I started my PhD. In 2015-2016 I was visiting RMoD and SequeL laboratories at the National French Research Institute in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA Lille), working with Damien Cassou and Nicolas Anquetil on Software Engineering, and with Philippe Preux on applied Machine Learning.

My research aims to enable better decision making for individuals (software developers, movie watchers, robots, ...). I'm particularly interested on how data analytics could benefit citizens, industry and society.

To put it simply, I'm a promiscuous cross-disciplinary aspirant researcher!
