I am a postdoctoral researcher at GRASP (General Robotics, Automation, Sensing, and Perception) Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania. 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. Additionally, I hold B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Applied Mathematics from Instituto Superior Técnico in 2007 and 2009, respectively.

My research consists of 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, his interests span to network science, as well as neuroscience and biomedicine, where dynamical systems and control theoretic tools can be leveraged to develop new analysis tools. In the context of network science, the goal is to develop and characterize network models that capture the intrinsic dynamical properties of real large-scale complex networks. For brain dynamics, we seek to leverage dynamical systems to unveil new insights towards the understanding in healthy and disease regimes, which, ultimately, will lead towards new diagnostics and treatments of neural disorders. Also, these tools can be used towards effective personalized medicine and improve brain-computer and brain-machine-brain interfaces that will improve people's life quality.

My current research extends to neuroscience, bio-engineering and medicine, where dynamical systems and 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 towards effective personalized medicine and improve brain-computer and brain-machine-brain interfaces that will improve people's life quality.
