Graduated in Electrical and Computers Engineering (MSc degree) at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. Currently working as a Research Assistant at INESC Porto pursuing his PhD degree in Telecommunications. Shortly after my graduation, I did an internship at Xilinx Research Labs (Dublin) related with the use of FPGAs for data center architectures. Throughout my academic path, I had two experiences in foreign academic/R&D intitutions: 1) Exchange student at KTH - Royal Institute of Technology, in Sweden, during two semesters (Erasmus exchange program); 2) Master Dissertation student and later Research Assistant at FZI - Forschungszentrum Informatik am Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, in Germany, during two semesters. (Thesis title: Achieving Interoperability between SystemC and System#) I also had an Integration in Research experience at INESC Porto, whose research topic was the analysis and modelling of network traffic generated by virtual worlds.
