I am an Associate Researcher at HASLab- High Assurance Laboratory at University of Minho and INESC TEC. My research interests are in dependable distributed systems, in particular epidemic or gossip-based protocols, large scale data management and transactional distributed databases.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Universities of Minho, Aveiro and Porto (MAP-i Doctoral Program in Computer Science)in 2013. I researched the problems of data dissemination on very-large scale distributed systems with multiple data sources, multiple concurrent different data, large payloads and ordering constraints under dynamic conditions.

Besides, I'm also interested in the challenges posed by very large scale transactional databases, and the automation and decentralized management of very large scale computing infrastructures.

Remarkably, these two problems lie at the core of modern distributed system challenges and in particular Cloud Computing, Big Data and the SmartGrid.

Recent projects on these topics where I participated are:  LeanBigDataCoherentPaaSStratus and GORDA.
