I am a Lecturer at the Department of Informatics at the University of Minho. I am also a researcher at HASLab/INESC TEC. My research interest focus mainly on machine learning and data mining. Occasionally, I participate in Bioinformatics research projects involving analysis of molecular dynamic simulations of protein folding/unfolding.

 I hold a PhD in Computing from Imperial College (University of London) where I did research in logic programming. I have been working on the development of association rules mining algorithms and novel patterns to capture distribution learning. I also have interest in social network analysis, graph mining, subgroup mining and motif discovery in time series.
