Background Information

        Since February 2004, I am an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Electronics, Telecommunications and Informatics at the University of Aveiro. I am also a researcher in the Institute of Telecommunications, where I coordinate the Network Architectures and Protocols (NAP) Group.

        Between September 2002 and February 2004, I was an Assistant Professor at the Dept. of Computer Science in the University of Porto. I was also the Coordinator of the Computer Networks Group in the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science.

        I am also a Guest Faculty of the Departament of Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, USA, since August 2008. Faculty of ICTI: Information & Communication Technologies Institute. From October 2010 to May 2011 I was in Sabbatical in Carnegie Mellon University, working together with Prof. Peter Steenkiste and Prof. Ozan Tonguz.

        I have been involved in several national, Transatlantic and European projects, taking leaderships of several activities in the projects, such as the QoS and ad-hoc networks integration activity in the FP6 IST-Daidalos Project.

        I finished my graduation on Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering in July 1997, and finished my PhD, entitled "Resource Allocation in Networks with QoS Support" (done partially as a visitor student in the Rice University through supervision of Prof. Edward Knightly), in February 2003.

        My interests comprise the areas of new network architectures and protocols for the Future Internet, more specifically in vehicular communications, network and resources virtualization, cognitive and self-management networks.
