I am an Invited Assistant at the Department of Computer Engineering of the University of Coimbra. I am also an Invited Professor at ISCTEM.

2013/14: Distributed Systems, Compilers and Multimedia

Past: Operative Systems, Databases, Applications for the Internet


I am currently pursuing a PhD in Parallel Programming also at the University of Coimbra, under the supervision of Bruno Cabral.

My research interests include Concurrency, Parallel Programming, CPU and GPU balancing, Granularity Control and Scheduling Optimization.

I have worked on the Æminium programming language and runtime, and have developed a CPU-GPU hybrid compiler and runtime for Æminium and Java.


I am a freelance Software Developer and Trainer. I work on web-development, mainly Django, but can dabble in several other languages. Get in touch if you are interested in my services.

I have organized workshops for both the general public and specific companies on Python, Django and Git.


I’m definitely geek, atheist, straight-edge, adept of Radical Honesty and not a vegetarian!
