Alexandre Valle de Carvalho has been a University Professor since 2001, and Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering (DEI) at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) since 2009. He is a researcher at the Center for Information Systems and Computer Graphics (CSIG) at INESCTEC, since 2001 and senior researcher since 2009. The scientific area of Computer Graphics has been present throughout its academic path, starting with Raytracing and Radiosity Hybrid for the Calculation of Photorealistic Images, of 1994, in the Graphical Interface of the Input Module of Data from the VALORAGUA Model, from 1997, in the Image Synthesis for Virtual Environments Experiences with the RENDERCACHE technique, from 2001., culminating with his PhD entitled “Spatio-temporal Information Management and Visualization” in 2009. Furthermore, other professional activity in Geographic Information Systems, as a scholarship, technical staff and then as a researcher at INESC Porto, motivated the scientific study in this area and in the application domain of urban information management, eDemocracy and eGovernment. The joining of both areas - computer graphics and information systems - as well as the background in urban data management resulted in the theme and PhD work, in management and visualization of space-time information, completed in 2009, where he defended two hypothesis: one in information systems and another in information visualization. Alexandre performs research in these two areas until the present time. Furthermore, he has participated in a considerable number of research and development projects, framed by European projects, R&D national projects and specialized consultancy, having publications indexed in scientific conferences and journals. Regarding economic and direct knowledge extension to society, Alexandre founded SIAGHOS in 2012, towards systems and technology to support observational clinical studies. In this context, it conceived, produced and innovated in information systems to support the registration and analysis processes of observational clinical studies for hematology-oncology diseases. These systems were used by a considerable number of Portuguese hematologists, between 2012 and 2018. Furthermore, in 2015 Alexandre co-founded MITMYNID, an INESC TEC spinoff towards innovative solutions for the Transport and Logistics Sector. At MITMYNID, Alexandre participated in the coordination BIZCARGO and of projects with a high degree of innovation and in the elaboration and execution of proposals and provision of services where innovation is also evident. Examples of this are two P2020 demonstration projects and collaboration on two European projects. In the context of university management, Alexandre performed scientific and pedagogical coordination of curricular units, course groups and degree and master courses.
