Hi! I’m Gonçalo, a Machine Learning/NLP PhD student in the DeepSPIN Project, an ERC-funded research project coordinated by Prof. André Martins.

I did my MSc at The University of Edinburgh, having studied Artificial Intelligence. My Master’s thesis was advised by Prof. Frank Keller and was about using human attention as an additional supervision signal to improve the performance of a Visual Question Answering model.

I’m very passionate about Machine Learning and its applications. I am particularly interested in the fields of Representation Learning and Unsupervised Learning.
