Short Bio:

I am a FCT post-doctoral researcher in the Inteligent Robots and Systems group, Institute for Systems and Robotics (LARSyS), Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal. I got the MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, from the Faculty of Sciences and Technology, University of Coimbra, Portugal (2008 and 2013 respectively), under the supervision of Prof. Helder Araujo. Since 2015, I am a member of The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

My main current research topics are: 3D computer vision, real-time robot navigation using computer vision, and pedestrian detection.
