BIO

I am a PostDoc Researcher at the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support (LIAAD - INESC Tec), and an Invited Professor at the Sciences College of the University of Porto (FCUP). I successfully defended my Ph.D. at FCUP in 2017, under the supervision of Professor Luís Torgo. My work was fully funded by a scholarship awarded by FCT (Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology), and my final dissertation was awarded in the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge 2017.

I completed my M.Sc. in Architectures, Systems and Networks at the Polytechnic Institute of Oporto (ISEP) in 2012 and was awarded a merit diploma for outstanding academic performance, with a thesis entitled "Bridging the gap between closed and open data - System proposal for the Portuguese Legislation" under the supervision of Professor Fátima Rodrigues.

In 2009, I completed my undergraduate in Computer Engineering, also at the Polytechnic Institute of Oporto, with the thesis "Estimating the Number of Nodes in Wireless Sensor Networks" under the supervision of Professor Björn Andersson. During the last months of this work, I received a Research Integration Scholarship from FCT and was associated to CISTER (Research Centre in Real-Time Computing Systems).
