I am a PhD candidate at VisLab - Computer Vision Laboratory (ISR/IST, U Lisboa) under the supervision of Prof. Alexandre Bernardino.

My research focuses on visual scene understanding and human-robot interaction. During 2012-1015 I worked on the POETICON++ project (together with linguists, computer vision people, neuroscientists and roboticists), on object affordances and human body gestures. In 2012 I visited the Speech, Music and Hearing department of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, to work with Prof. Giampiero Salvi on designing an automatic gesture recognition system based on the principles of automatic speech recognition.
