I'm an Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics Engineering (DEI) of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC), and a researcher at the Centre for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (CISUC).
At the University of Coimbra, I’m the coordinator of the Bachelor in Design and Multimedia⇗ and I teach Internet Technology⇗, Interactive Media Design⇗, Interface Architecture⇗, and Interactive Virtual Reality Environments⇗.
I'm also a Visiting Academic at the University of Saint Joseph, Macau, China, where I teach the Virtual Reality Environments⇗ module of the Design Master Programme.
My research interests include Human-Computer Interaction, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Tangible User Interfaces, Interaction Techniques, Interaction Design.
I have a PhD from the University of Minho (UM) where I worked at the Ubicomp group on interactive public display systems, an MSc in Mobile Systems also from the UM, and a Licenciatura from the Engineering Faculty of the University of Porto.
I'm also collaborator at the Research Center for Science and Technology of the Arts (CITAR) of the School of Arts - Porto, and former editor of the Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts until 2018.
I enjoy programming, especially for new interactive experiences, and I have developed several Processing libraries for interfacing with new input devices. I have also collaborated with various artists in the development of interactive art installations. See my projects page for details.
