About Me

I am a research scientist at CISTER (Research Centre in Real-Time and Embedded Computing Systems), a research unit co-hosted by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) and the School of Engineering (ISEP) of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto.

Prior to joining CISTER, I studied in Brussels at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), where I obtained my PhD in January 2013 and my Master degree in electrical engineering in 2008. 

Research Interests

My work is mostly related to the modelling and analysis of real-time and embedded systems. My research interests include scheduling on multicore and distributed systems, cache analysis, solutions for safety critical systems, real-time network and everything related to the analysis and configuration of real-time parallel applications on multicore and distributed platforms.


I am currently advising the following students
I also worked with Ricardo Garibay (PhD obtained in 2016) and co-advised Sangeeth Kochanthara (who won the best Master Thesis award from IIIT-Delhi in 2017).
