About me

Hi!

Welcome to my webpage. I am a data scientist interested in using advanced prescription analytics to design business strategies. I currently work as a data scientist at Telstra, an Australian telecommunication company. I use machine learning to help the marketing team increase the effectiveness of our campaigns.

Before joining Telstra, I worked as a data scientist at QBE, an Australian Insurance company. There, I supported the actuarial and product teams providing recommendations about customer behaviours so that we could deliver the appropriate product with the price that the customer is willing to pay.

My Australian journey started when I joined the University of Sydney as a postdoctoral research associate, where the focus of my work was on large-scale optimization and modelling.

More broadly, I am also passionate about making a local impact, moving our society toward a more just ideal. That means learning about and working to increase diversity in STEM, and technical approaches for social good.

During my PhD, I was an active leader in my department and at Université Grenoble Alpes, advocating for graduate students through inclusion efforts. I’m especially proud of the PhD students association during the years 2012-2013, where I learned management skills that have positively impacted almost every aspect of my life.

When I’m not doing those things, I am probably baking bread or walking my dog. Before moving to Australia, I lived in Europe (Italy, France, and The Netherlands), and Brazil.
