I hold a Bachelor and Master degree in Civil Engineering, and i am currently pursuing a Doctoral degree in Transport Systems through the MIT Portugal program which I intend to finish during the Q4 2018. I was awarded a full PhD scholarship by FCT and spent 7 months in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as part of my curriculum.
I have 2 years of work experience in Engineering and Transports. At the private sector i worked for a consulting company and at the public sector I worked for the city of Ovar. I also did some works as a freelancer.
I have several years of research experience in transport systems using optimization, modeling and simulation. As a researcher in a project co-funded by the European Union in the area of road safety and as a PhD student in the area of transport systems with studies on: Research Methodologies, Modelling of transport demand, Optimization of Infrastructure and Transport Operations, Optimization and Decision Support Techniques and Soil-Use/Transports Systems Simulation.
My interests are in the data science and engineering sector, particularly in urban mobility, intelligent transport systems and autonomous vehicles supported by optimization, simulation, modeling and recent passion in programming, artificial intelligence and deep learning.
