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

Albert Einstein

Senior Research Fellow at ITI/LARSyS, IST, University of Lisbon.

Currently, I am Senior Research Fellow at Interactive Technologies Institute (ITI), LARSyS, IST, University of Lisbon. Previously, I was Assistant Professor  at University of Madeira, where I lectured in the HCI Master program (MHCI), in partnership with HCII, Carnegie Mellon University, for 3 academic years. I was also 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, 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.
