Who am I?

I am an assistant professor at the Computer Science Department of the School of Sciences in the University of Porto. I obtained my Ph.D. degree at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge under the topic of Body Sensor Networks. The PhD was supported by a scholarship from the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia of Portugal. I did my diploma and M.Sc. (ECE) at the Engineering School of the University of Porto. I have worked in Research at IT-Aveiro, PT Inovação (now Altice Labs), INESC-Porto, LIACC and since 2007 in IT-Porto. During this time I worked in identity management, communication networks, middleware development and currently on ad-hoc wireless networks for sensors/actuators and protocols for these networks; medical informatics and mHealth; and network security. I have participated in several national and international projects (DAIDALOS, Future Cities, Future Health, VR2Market, NanoSTIMA, etc.); where in some there was development of prototypes (app for diabets management, health kiosk, ad-hoc network for smartphones).
