I am Raysa¹, a computer science researcher with a background in applied social sciences, mainly interested in the following fields: computer science applications to legal and public policy-related settings; ethics & epistemology of artificial intelligence; computer science & society; science & technology studies; STEM education. 

I am pursuing a PhD in Computer Science in the University of Tübingen (Germany), at the Cluster of Excellence 'Machine Learning: New Perspectives for Science'. I am part of the Ethics & Epistemology of Machine Learning research group, advised by Konstantin Genin and Bob Williamson. I am also affiliated to the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS)

Previously, I earned a M.Sc. (2023) and a B.Sc. (2020) in the same field, from the University of Campinas (Brazil), where I was a member of the Recod.ai lab, advised by Esther Colombini and Sandra Avila; and a bachelor's degree in Law (2015) from the University of São Paulo (Brazil). My bachelor in Computer Science was partially completed at ENSIMAG, in the Grenoble Institute of Technology (France). 

I was a fellow (2022) in the Berkeley Equity and Access in Algorithms, Mechanisms, and Optimization research group (BEAAMO) at the University of California, Berkeley, supervised by Rediet Abebe. I am also part of the Mechanism Design for Social Good (MD4SG) initiative.
