Welcome to my personal home page located in the University of Algarve, Portugal.

I am a PhD student working on the project "From detection to automatic recognition of faces in color images", Professor Hamid Shahbashkia is my supervisor. More can be found in the face detection and recognition page.

My complete name is Filipe António Gonçalves Tomaz, born in 1978, Faro, Portugal in the 13th of June.

Presently I have two completely professional different interests in life: my PhD studies and CNC metal manufacturing. In the end, both use common work knowledge since the metal manufacturing uses a computer as the controller. Also, part of the software that runs the machine was done using the same tools that I use for the PhD project. I worked about two years in a project called DarkCut, a CNC cutting system for sheets of metal. I made a prototype that did not worked as expected, but the second machine is now functional and working. More about this machine can be found in the DarkCut page.
