I am a researcher, a software designer and an interactive media artist. In research, my interests lie in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), interactive machine learning, interactive audiovisual art, digitally enhanced performance, and innovation in the music business and creative industries.
I hold a B.S. in Computer Science and Systems Engineering and an MSc in Mobile Systems, both from University of Minho, Portugal. I also hold an M.A. in Management of Creative Industries, from Portuguese Catholic University, with specialism in Creativity and Innovation in the Music Industry.Before returning to academia, I have worked in the software industry for many years, in R&D for Interactive Digital Signage and Corporate TV, (Ubisign) and Business Intelligence (PRIMAVERA BSS), developing video applications, complex user interface architectures and interaction design for public screen, web, mobile and augmented reality applications.
Previously, I was at Portuguese Catholic University - Porto, as a researcher in the Research Center for Science and Technology of the Arts (CITAR). There I worked on VisualizARt, an interdisciplinary project focused on Augmented Reality and Natural User Interfaces for Music Technology. I was also was an invited lecturer in Interactive Sound Design for the Digital Design Post-Graduation course.
Currently, I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science at Goldsmiths University of London, in the Embodied Audiovisual Interaction group (EAVI). I work on the EU Horizon 2020-funded Innovation Action project RAPIX-MIX, where I focus on Human-Computer Interaction and Machine Learning approaches to explore and develop novel technologies into creative and expressive tools.
I am also an Alpha Developer for Google ATAP Project Soli, for which I develop new application concepts and interaction design for Soli.
