I’m an Auxiliary Professor (Professor Auxiliar) at the Department of Electronics Telecommunications and Informatics of the Universidade de Aveiro with a degree in Computer and Telematics Engineering and a Phd on Electrotechnical Engineering. My teaching activities are mostly on Network & Artificial Intelligence related courses such as «Engenharia de Serviços» and «Introdução à Inteligência Artificial».
My current research topics are the Internet of Things and Machine Learning in which I have several running projects with industrial partners.
In the past I’ve been involved in IST-C-Cast a project whose main objective was to evolve mobile multimedia multicasting to exploit the increasing integration of mobile devices with our everyday physical world and environment and which followed project C-Mobile whose work relates to developments in 3GPP MBMS. I’ve also taken part in IST-Daidalos, a European Project working in future Next Generation Networks. In this project my work was mostly related to network architecture, L3 QoS support in Multicast/Broadcast environments. Other past projects include IST-Mobydick and IST-Akogrimo.
My main interests relate to the Context Management Architectures and Services, Mobile Applications and Telecom Services. During my years as a undergrad student, I helped create the University Linux User Group (GLUA – Grupo Linux Universidade de Aveiro), in which I still occasionally collaborate.
In my free time (when I have some), I spend it mostly sightseeing with my wife around Portugal. As a hobby I take part in a local Hackerspace Hack’Aveiro and often I do some MTB around Aveiro with friends and family.
