I am a Research Scientist at Hospital da Luz Learning Health, and a Collaborator at INESC-ID. Previously I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Indiana University Bloomington, and a Fellow at IU Network Science Institute (IUNI), Indiana, United States. I am also a member of the Complex Systems Society Council and the former Chair of the advisory board of yrCSS.
I have a PhD (July, 2019) in Information Systems and Computer Engineering from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal).
Between 2013 – 2018 I was a teaching assistant at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico and between September 2018 – August 2019 I was an Invited Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics of Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL).
My research interests are:
- Graph Theory / Algorithms on Graphs
- Network Science / Complex Systems
- Computational Cognitive / Social Sciences
- Computational Medicine/ Epidemiology / Biology
- Network Neuroscience
- Human Behavior / Evolutionary Game Theory
My research work is focused on the development of measures, computational models and simulation frameworks to understand collective dynamics, more specifically in what concerns the evolution and behavior of complex systems.
Previous research positions include: junior researcher at IDSS group/INESC-ID between 2012 and 2019; member of the ATP group between 2016 and 2019; collaborator at LASIGE from September 2018 to August 2019; postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Social and Biomedical Complexity, between September 2019 and August 2020; and a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at Indiana University, between September 2020 and December 2020.
In 2017 (June and July), I was also as an invited junior researcher in Kyushu University, Japan, contributing to the the BIRD’s Research Project in Task 1 – Algorithms for Sequence Analysis – and Task 2 – Compression and Indexing Techniques for Repetitive Data.
