Hi, I’m Chico!

I am an interdisciplinary researcher working on computational social science, complex systems, cultural evolution, opinion dynamics, and collective human behaviour in general. I am also interested in the laws that explain the evolution of information. Find me at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford.

When I’m not doing science, you might find me talking about it at places like Oxford’s Science Cabaret, writing for Huffpost Brasil, or making YouTube videos at BláBláLogia, which is a part of Science Vlogs Brasil. If you want to know more, use the menu on the left, or go to my CV.
