I am a Professor at Computer Science Department of the NOVA University of Lisbon, and a researcher at NOVA Laboratory for Computer Science and Informatics (NOVA LINCS) in the Software Systems research group.

I started my academic career as an Assistant at Universidade do Minho. After that, I joined the Dependable Systems & Software Engineering Group (DSSE) of the University of Southampton, first as a PhD student and later as a research fellow.  After returning to Portugal in 2003, I was an Assistant Professor at IST.
