I am a research scientist, a software engineer, and an interactive media artist.
I design computational toolkits, research methodologies and pedagogical approaches to inspire and enable different communities to create and innovate with new technologies, in particular, with machine learning, sensors and Web technologies. I have taught in several UK and Portuguese universities. I also do consulting in design innovation and software engineering.
I hold a PhD in Computer Science from Goldsmiths, University of London, an M.A. in Management in the Creative Industries, from Portuguese Catholic University. I also hold a Licenciatura in Computer Science and Systems Engineering and an MSc in Mobile Systems, both from the University of Minho.
I have 7 years of experience in the software industry, as a front-end architect and software engineer for public screen applications and business intelligence products. I have an additional 8 years of experience working on applied R&D and large publicly-funded projects at the interface between academia and industry.
