Hi! I am a Professor Auxiliar at the Departamento de Ciência de Computadores, Universidade do Porto and a researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações in Porto, where I lead the Geo-Networks group.

I'm also co-founder of Geolink a technology-based company specialized in the optimization of vehicular mobility.

Research

Currently, my main research interest is in the area of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). I'm especially interested in Cooperative ITS, where inter-vehicle communication plays an important role. Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET), mobility simulation and spatio-deductive databases are important topics in my current research. Vehicular Networks are a particular case of networks where the geographical awareness of nodes is crucial in the design of protocols and applications. A major goal in my research is the efficient design of large-scale distributed systems that use infrastructureless communication to self-organize, based on spatial reasoning.

I'm currently leading the following research projects:
