I am 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, being a member of the Navigators group. I am also a member of the MEF Research Council.
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.
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.
