“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution”

Albert Einstein

Assistant Professor at University of Madeira and Researcher at ITI/LARSyS.

Currently,  I am  Assistant Professor  at University of Madeira and Researcher at Interactive Technologies Institute (ITI), LARSyS. I also lectured in the HCI Master program (MHCI), in partnership with HCII, Carnegie Mellon University, for 3 academic years.

Previously, I was postdoctoral researcher at Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT)/University of Helsinki, working with Prof. Giulio Jacucci in the Ubiquitous Interaction Group (UIx). I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, from Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, Portugal, which was supervised by Prof. Nuno Correia at the Interactive Multimedia Group (IMG). My doctoral studies were mainly funded by a Ph.D. grant from the UTAustin|Portugal, Digital Media Program.
