Anderson Paulo Avila Santos
My primary research emphasis is on leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to address sophisticated biological challenges. I'm dedicated to making AI accessible to all, adhering strictly to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).
My academic foundation was laid at the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUC/PR) where I studied Information Systems. Later, I specialized in Software Engineering and Databases at the State University of Londrina (UEL) and further honed my skills in AI applied to Industry at SENAI Londrina. My dedication to the field was cemented with a Master's in Computer Science from UEL.
Since 2018, I've been imparting my knowledge in higher education, instructing in Software Engineering and specialized AI programs. This journey has fortified my expertise in AI, its application in biological contexts, and the nuances of complex data analysis.
