Lucas Rizzo


Lucas Rizzo is a Ph.D. candidate at Dublin Institute of Technology, funded by the Brazilian Scholarship Science Without Borders. He has a BSc in Computational Mathematics and a Master's degree in Computer Science from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG - Brazil). In the past, he has worked in the fields of constraint programming and operational research, with four years of industry experience. Currently, his Ph.D. project is focused on defeasible reasoning and computational argumentation theory. It aims to demonstrate the impact of practical argumentation theory when compared to other knowledge driven approaches in areas such human mental workload, computational trust and health-care.
