Summary

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 by the start of 2018 summer. 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 Transports. At the private sector i worked for a consulting company. At the public sector I worked for the city of Ovar. I also did some works as a freelancer. In R&D I have several years of research experience in transports. 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.

My interests are in the transport sector, particularly in transport systems performance and economic analysis using my skills in optimization, simulation, modeling and recent passion in programming and artificial intelligence.

Work experience

2012present

PhD research

MIT Portugal at University of Porto - Faculty of Engineering, Porto, Portugal

With a scholarship since 2014, I have been researching on emergency medical service response with a focus on strategic and tactical decisions and policies. Using optimization, simulation and modeling I assess and propose different decisions and policies for EMS vehicles location and dispatching in urban environments where demand and traveling conditions are in constant change.
