Bio

I am an Assistant Lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) and a Ph.D. student of the Doctoral Program in Informatics Engineering (ProDEI) at the same school since 2015. Currently, I teach the course unit Programming Laboratories (LPRO) and Information Systems (SINF) of the M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MIEEC). Also, I am a researcher on the Research Center for Systems & Technologies (SYSTEC) since 2013. I received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at FEUP in 2013.


My research focus on introducing intelligence into industrial processes and contribute to the emergence of autonomous factories, by implementing novel approaches of Cyber-Physical Systems. The main objectives of my Ph.D. is to study the problem regarding security, intrusion detection and recovery in Cyber-Physical Systems applied to industrial contexts. To solve this problem, a Self-Immune approach is considered, which will be based on Artificial Immune Systems principles. I also co-authored several publications and recently co-supervised some M. Sc. dissertations in Informatics and Electrical and Computer Engineering.


I participated into several European RTD projects, including “Intelligent Network Devices for fast Ramp-Up” (I-RAMP³), funded by the Factories of the Future programme (FoF-PPP) of the EC FP7, “Innovative Reuse of modular knowledge Based devices and technologies for Old, Renewed and New factories” (ReBorn) and “Innovative strategies for Renovation and Repair in Manufacturing systems” (SelSus) both funded by the Factories of the Future programme (FoF-PPP) of EC FP7. In these projects I had the opportunity to collaborate closely with both academic and industrial partners, such as University of Applied Science Karlsruhe, Loughborough University, Harms&Wende, AWL-Techniek, Fraunhofer IPA, IEF Werner, Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum, Technax, Electrolux, Xetics, Gamax, Inotec, Paro AG, Ford Motor Co, etc.


Currently, I'm participating in National RTD projects, including “PRODUTECH SIF – SOLUÇÕES PARA A INDÚSTRIA DO FUTURO” (PRODUTECH-SIF) and “INDTECH 4.0 – Novas tecnologias para fabricação inteligente”. In these projects I'm having the opportunity to collaborate closely with both academic and industrial partners, such as University of Aveiro, Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal, Instituto Superior Técnico, Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco, Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, INESC-TEC, INEGI, PSA Mangualde, Neadvance, ISQ, Critical Manufacturing, COLEP, IDEPA, etc.
