I am Ph.D. candidate at the University of Sheffield and a member of the Natural Language Processing Research Group in the Department of Computer Science. Currently, I am working on data-driven Text Simplification under the supervision of Prof. Lucia Specia and Dr. Carolina Scarton. My research is funded by a Faculty of Engineering Doctoral Academy Scholarship.

Before coming to Sheffield, I worked as lecturer at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (2013-2016), where I was a member of the Artificial Intelligence Group IA-PUCP in the Department of Informatics Engineering. I taught modules on programming languages, algorithms and text processing. I also supervised several final year graduate research projects.

I received a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of São Paulo, Brazil. I was supervised by João Rosa from the Interinstitutional Center for Computational Linguistics. During my Master, I worked with semantic role labeling for Brazilian Portuguese. I also have a B.Sc. in Informatics Engineering from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru.
