Felipe Soares

Currently, I am PhD student in Engineering with focus on Machine Learning and I'm working for Apple as an AI/ML Engineer. My research area is Multilingual Biomedical Natural Language Processing, focusing on low-resourced BioNLP languages (e.g. Spanish and Portuguese).

In the past, I have worked with Biomedical Machine Translation, with focus on Neural Machine Translation and parallel corpora acquisition, and general Biomedical Text Mining, such as classification and Named Entity Recognition (NER).

I have also previously worked with data mining in the Chemical domain, more specific to Chemometrics. I developed methods of feature selection aiming at reducing the number of wavelengths in different spectroscopy techniques.

I hold the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Industrial Engineering - Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS)

  • Master in Industrial Engineering - Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul

  • Master in Computer Science - Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul

I'm enrolled in my last semester of PhD in Engineering from UFRGS (graduating in January/2022), but I've also completed an year of PhD in Computer Science (NLP) at the University of Sheffield.
