I am a statistician, reproducible research enthusiast, R and git active user. I like statistical modelling in general, package and dashboards development, text mining and APIs. I am specially interested in machine learning, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis, feature extraction and probabilistic graphical models.

**What am I doing right now**

Currently, I am pursuing my PhD at the Hamilton Institute in Maynooth, Ireland. I am a part of Andrew Parnell’s research group, and we are mostly working with extensions (Bayesian) tree-based models and its many possible applications.

Apart from that, I am also very interested in Music Information Retrieval. I have developed two packages for music data extraction in R: vagalumeR, which is about getting lyrics data from the Vagalume API, and chorrrds, a package that extracts music chords from the CifraClub website (both available on CRAN). I have contributed to the R package that makes the connection with the Spotify API (found at this repository). More about music data extraction & analysis can be found at my R-Music blog, a blog that I started in 2018 and that has as its main goals to enable the study and practice of Music Information Retrieval (MIR) in R.

I am a member of the R-Ladies (Dublin and São Paulo chapters), a non-profit organization that promotes gender diversity in the R/data science community. I am also a moderator of various data science/programming communities. I am always happy to help people who are interested in the fantastic area of Data Science.

Apart from that, I like to spend my "free time" studying music (focusing on piano), languages and linguistics, cycling and traveling.
