07.01.2014: Our survey “Software-Defined Networking: A Comprehensive Survey” is the highlight of the current issue of the Proceedings of the IEEE! (Of course, the github page continues available to receive feedback from the networking/SDN community to make it a crowd-sourced “live document”.)
19.12.2014: My student Gonçalo Semedo defended, with success, his Master’s thesis on “Load balancing in real Software Defined Networks” (16/20). Well done, Gonçalo!
24.11.2014: My student Tiago Posse defended, with success, his Master’s thesis on “A Software Defined Networking architecture for secure routing” (17/20). Great job, Tiago!
16-21.11.2014: Participation in the Dagstuhl seminar “Towards an Affordable Internet Access for Everyone: The Quest for Enabling Universal Service Commitment“. An excellent week of discussions centered around the IETF GAIA research group efforts.
I am an Invited 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.
Generically, I am interested in computer networks, communications, and systems. “Designing a better Internet” could be my unpretencious motto. More specifically, my current interests are Software Defined Networking, network virtualization, and cloud computing.
