I am auxiliary professor in the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Algarve, Faro, Portugal. I have a B.Sc. (1995), M.Sc. (1998) and Ph.D. (2005) in computer science.
My research interests include the application of optimization techniques to several network design problems, optical/access/sensor networks, and development of algorithms for network issues. I am a founding member of the Center of Electronics, Optoelectronics and Telecommunications (CEOT) at the University of Algarve, a research center supported by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology, where I am the Networks and Systems group coordinator.
