04.03.2016: Our paper “Blending photons with electrons to reduce the energy footprint of IPTV networks” has been accepted for presentation in IFIP Networking 2016. The idea is to shift popular TV traffic to optics to save energy. Thanks to Jon Crowcroft and Ian White for all the help!

26.02.2016: I’ll be serving on the TPC of the ACM SIGCOMM Global Access to the Internet for All (GAIA) Workshop, co-located with SIGCOMM’16, and also on the SIGCOMM’16 poster and demo committee (the poster session includes the ACM Student Research Competition). Send us your high quality ongoing work, as it will be an excellent occasion to have fruitful discussions. Meet you in Salvador, Brazil!

18.02.2016: Our paper (Literally) above the clouds: virtualizing the network over multiple clouds was accepted for IEEE NetSoft 2016. In this paper we present the preliminary network virtualization architecture we propose for the SUPERCLOUD project. Excellent work Max and Nuno!

16.02.2016: Our abstracts Secure and Dependable Virtual Network Embedding, Consistent and fault-tolerant SDN with unmodified switches, and An SDN-based approach to enhance BGP security were accepted for presentation in NSDI’16 poster session. These abstracts presents the general idea of our projects on sec&dep VNE; FT, consistent SDN; and a new approach for BGP security. Well done Luís, Max, Nuno, André, and Regivaldo!

20.01.2016: Our paper Medusa: An Efficient Cloud Fault-Tolerant MapReduce was accepted for CCGrid 2016. Excellent job Pedro, Xiao and Miguel!

About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Informatics, at the Faculty of Sciences University of Lisbon. I am also an integrated researcher at the LaSIGE – eXtreme Computing Lab, where I integrate the Navigators group.

Until 2010 I was a supervisor in the Computer Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Prior to that I also lectured at the ISEL and at the University of Aveiro. But my first job before settling in academia was as a junior researcher in Portugal Telecom Inovação, back in 2001. And I also did an internship in Telefonica Research Barcelona, in 2009, where I worked with Pablo Rodriguez and Xavier Amatriain.

I hold a PhD degree from the University of Cambridge, where I have worked with Jon Crowcroft and Ian H. White. I also hold an MSc Degree in Telecommunications from Queen Mary University of London (supervised by Laurie Cuthbert and Manuel Duarte) and a Licenciatura (roughly equivalent to BSc+MSc) in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Aveiro.

Research interests

I am interested in computer networks and communication systems. In particular: network programmability (Software-Defined Networking and siblings), network virtualization, network verification, and cloud computing, with security and dependability as orthogonal concerns.
