PhD in Computer Science
I am particularly interested in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks, where vehicles communicate amongst themselves through wireless links. I completed my PhD on this field in August 2015, where I worked under Dr. Peter Steenkiste and Dr. João Barros.
Other interests include distributed systems and software engineering.
