I am a postdoctoral researcher at
GRASP (General Robotics, Automation, Sensing and Perception) laboratory
at the University of Pennsylvania. I am working under the supervision of professor George J. Pappas, and currently supported by the TerraSwarm Research Center.

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Carnegie Mellon University, and Instituto Superior Técnico from the University of Lisbon (dual degree), in 2014. I also got my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Applied Mathematics from Instituto Superior Técnico in 2007 and 2009, respectively.

My research consists in understanding the global qualitative behavior of large scale systems from their structural or parametric descriptions and provide a rigorous framework for the design, analysis, optimization and control of large scale (real-world) systems. Currently, I expanded my interests to neuroscience, where control theoretic tools can be leveraged to develop new analysis tools for brain dynamics that, ultimately, will lead to new diagnostics and treatments of neural disorders.
In addition, these tools can be used to improve brain-computer and
brain-machine-brain interfaces that will improve people's life quality.
