Just another personal web site.


Hello, I’m Aécio Santos. I’m currently a Research Associate at New York University – Tandon School of Engineering in New York City. Before moving here, I used to work as Software Engineer for a Brazilian start-up called Zunnit Technologies, building a distributed platform for recommender systems and machine learning. Before that, I received a masters degree in Computer Science from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) under supervision of professor Nivio Ziviani. At UFMG, I was a colaborator of the LAboratory for Treating INformation (LATIN), where I worked in a project called InWeb, that aimed to research and develop new technologies for the Web.

The research topics I’m currently interested are:

  • Web Information Retrieval
  • Machine Learning
  • Data Mining
  • Recommender Systems
