About Me

I am a tenured Assistant Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands. Prior to  joining TU/e, I was a tenure track assistant researcher at the School of Engineering (ISEP) of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto where I was a member of CISTER (Research Centre in Real-Time and Embedded Computing Systems), a research unit co-hosted by ISEP and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP).

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.
