I started my professional career as a software analyst at SSF/Easysoft after concluding a 5 years degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering (1992-97) at IST. Since then, I interleaved my path between the university and the industry. I took PAGE post-graduation (2000-01) at Catholic University of Portugal and I received the MsC (2003-05) and the PhD (2009-14) degrees in Computer and Software Engineering from IST. During this journey, I passed by Altitude Software, Quatro SI, CCISEL and INESC ID where I had the opportunity to participate in different kinds of information systems projects in direct partnership with the industry. Since 2008, I am also an Assistant Professor at Computer Science and Engineering of ISEL.
