I am currently an invited assistant professor at University of Minho and a senior researcher at HASLab, one of the research units of INESC TEC and University of Minho.

My current research topics include:

Reliable Distributed Storage Systems: My current research work is focused on software-defined storage architectures and very-large scale storage systems. As some examples, I am interested in storage deduplication, stackable filesystems, and storage security. I am also interested in improving the performance of current storage solutions for HPC and AI workloads.

Benchmarking and Monitoring Storage Systems: Another research interest is on building proper benchmarking tools for monitoring and evaluating storage systems accurately.

Databases: Also, previous and current research work is focused on SQL and NoSQL databases and privacy/security.
