Meire Fortunato is a research scientist at DeepMind, which she joined in 2016. Meire received her undergraduate and master's degrees in Mathematics from University of Campinas in Brazil (in 2008 and 2010, respectively); and her PhD in Mathematics in 2016 from the University of California, Berkeley. Meire is co-founder and a member of the general committee of Khipu.ai, an effort to support and strengthen AI research in Latin America. Meire has worked on a variety of machine learning topics, such as sequence modeling and exploration and understanding the role of memory in reinforcement learning agents. In the last two years, Meire's research focus has been on how to use machine learning for physics simulations -- with emphasis on graph neural networks architectures. This links to her mathematics background, as her PhD thesis was on the generation of high-order meshes by solving partial differential equations with finite element methods.
