My main work is with cognitive modelling of social contagion phenomena. In other words, I explore the ways people influence each other about their opinions, behaviour and perceptions using agent-based and temporal-causal models and data science.
My contributions are mainly in cognitive computing, modelling, data science and simulation areas. Therefore, the work I develop is multidisciplinary, using computer science tools to solve problems in areas such as public security, the spread of fake news, promoting healthier lifestyles, etc.
My PhD Thesis Contagious: Modeling the spread of behaviours, perceptions and emotions in social networks is available for download.
I also have a YouTube channel to divulge my work as well as teaching resources on Agent-based modeling with Netlogo. The videos are mostly in Portuguese, but there is also content in English.
