I'm a researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações. I hold a PhD in Biotechnology, a Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics and a 5-year degree in Marine Biology. My main research activities have been focused on the development of mathematical and computational tools based on data mining and machine learning to extract meaningful information from high-dimensional data generated by high-throughput technologies. I've been developing my work in the context of precision medicine, bioprocess monitoring, quality control, and marine ecology applications.
