About

I got a Ph.D. in Informatics, Artificial Intelligence branch, at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, 1994.

I am currently Associate Professor at the Informatics Engineering Department, Engineering Faculty of the University of Porto (FEUP), where I teach in the areas of databases, data warehouses, digital preservation and discrete mathematics.

I have participated in the creation of the joint Doctoral Program in Computer Science (MAP-i) of the Universities of Minho, Aveiro and Porto and I integrate its Scientific Committee since 2007. I participated in the creation of the Information Science Bachelor (2001) and Master (1997) Programs jointly taught by the Engineering and Humanities Faculties and I integrate the corresponding Scientific Committees.

I am a member of the Scientific Council of the Engineering Faculty since 2010.

I have led the development team of SIGARRA, the U.PORTO Academic Information System, from 1996 to 2010.

I am a Researcher at INESC TEC since 1985, integrating its Administration since 2015. My main research interests are in Information Management, Digital Preservation, and Databases. I have been the leader of the projects FCT DBPreserve on preservation of databases, Gulbenkian APDIC on digital preservation plans and EEA Grant SeaBioData. Currently, I integrate the project FCT TAIL on research data management.

I have collaborated between  2000 and 2010 in the project Cooperation with the National University of Timor Leste led by the Foundation of the Portuguese Universities, as coordinator of the Informatics Engineering bachelor (2006-2010).

I am a member of the Engineers Portugal association where I have belonged to the Board of Admission and Qualification from 2010 to 2016.

ViBest SHM: an information system and data repository for structural health monitoring

EURODYN 2014: IX INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON STRUCTURAL DYNAMICS

Abstract
This project has been motivated by the need to standardize, preserve, and share the data sets of the Laboratory of Vibrations and Structural Monitoring (ViBest, www.fe.up.pt/vibest) of FEUP, produced by several long term projects individually managed. The solution presented is meant to support the process of Structural Health Monitoring, offering features to catalogue the projects, their goals and components, to store and visualize their acquired and processed data through time, and to preserve the data in a standardized form for all the research unit and extensible to future applications. The result is a digital archive with automatic ingestion of new data files and a Web interface with access control and tools for information management. There is a batch export functionality to deal with large data transfers. It is being used on monitoring data related with different kinds of structural health monitoring applications. The standardization and preservation of all data sets acquired in multiple applications will be certainly a solid basis for further research, either at a local basis or in the context of international joint cooperation.

Definition of a retrospective health information policy based on (re)use study

Handbook of Research on ICTs and Management Systems for Improving Efficiency in Healthcare and Social Care

Abstract
Medical information produced in hospitals is, simultaneously, used (1) to support health care provided to patients, (2) in research work performed by internal and external health professionals, and (3) as legal proof with various objectives. The co-existence of electronic and paper health information, the integration constraints of the various computer applications, and the storage of massive volumes of retrospective paper-based patient records are dominant concerns for São João Hospital Center (SJHC). These problems must be considered in the adoption of an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) in order to ensure that hospitals and patients fully benefit from the technological investments. The contribution of this chapter is the design and conduction of a (re)use study, which consisted of an analysis of the paper-based records management activities and of the patients' records content. A survey on the (re) use of the paper-based patient records has been conducted in order to characterize the (re)use in terms of objective and type of hospital encounter, and documents accessed were identified and organized in an access frequency table. The results support the paper-based patient records strategy to implement in SJHC integrated in the Hospital EPR adoption project. © 2013, IGI Global.

Term Weighting based on Document Revision History

Abstract
In real-world information retrieval systems, the underlying document collection is rarely stable or definitive. This work is focused on the study of signals extracted from the content of documents at different points in time for the purpose of weighting individual terms in a document. The basic idea behind our proposals is that terms that have existed for a longer time in a document should have a greater weight. We propose 4 term weighting functions that use each document's history to estimate a current term score. To evaluate this thesis, we conduct 3 independent experiments using a collection of documents sampled from Wikipedia. In the first experiment, we use data from Wikipedia to judge each set of terms. In a second experiment, we use an external collection of tags from a popular social bookmarking service as a gold standard. In the third experiment, we crowdsource user judgments to collect feedback on term preference. Across all experiments results consistently support our [...]
