Pedro Oliveira

Pedro is a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Instituto Superior Técnico. He got a MSc in Telecommunications and Informatics Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico and worked in network architecture of IP/MPLS and SD-WAN networks at Nokia. Currently he is doing research on the security of Machine Learning systems that are at the core of future Self-Driving Networks.

Pedro Ferreira

Graduated in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, his main interest is the research and development in the field of Child-Computer Interaction and the participation of educative communities and children in these processes. His doctoral work aims to propose a platform to bridge school and household environments centered on informal learning.

Pedro Camponês

I am a CS PhD student at Nova SST, working in: Network Security, Fault Tolerant Distributed Systems, Blockchains, and Privacy-Preserving Computation. I have great interest in all aforementioned areas and aim to explore them further during my PhD, all the while finding engaging problems and trying my hand at fixing them (hopefully with some success).

Miguel Diogo

In 2021 I graduated with a master’s degree in electrical and computer Engineering from Universidade de Coimbra. With a double major in automation and computers. In 2022, I was awarded a fellowship grant to join the SAFEFOREST project (a CMU-Portugal project). My research is focused on research path and motion planners, as well as develop a system using Gazebo and MoveIt (a ROS framework) to compare several path planning algorithms that help a wheeled robot navigate through an octree representation of its surroundings.

Keivan Kaboutari

I got my B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the Department of EEE-Telecommunication Engineering of the Islamic Azad University, West Azarbaijan, Urmia Branch, and METU in EEE-Biomedical, respectively. I worked on the LFEIT project developed in the framework of TUBITAK and COST Action BM1309 and AI-Beam, and POWER – 5G RU Indoor Antenna Design projects.

Filipe Marques

I am a PhD Student in Computer Science and Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico (Técnico), where I am very fortunate to be advised by Prof. José Fragoso Santos and Prof. Nuno Santos. I am also a junior researcher at INESC-ID, working on applying software verification and testing tools to support computer science students in their learning process. My research interests are mainly in programming languages, software verification and validation, formal methods, and cybersecurity. Previously, I completed my MSc in Computer Science and Engineering at Tecnico. My dissertation, entitled Robust Symbolic Execution for WebAssembly, was supervised by Prof. José Fragoso Santos and Prof. Nuno Santos and was defended on December 2022.

Eduardo Silva

Eduardo Silva graduated in the integrated master course of biomedical engineering and is currently enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Digital Media at FEUP. With the theme “On forecasting emergency department visits”, his dissertation is focused on the construction and analysis of forecasting systems for healthcare demand in the emergency department, where it was possible to embark on the area of data science, classical or machine learning forecasting techniques, thus expanding an already vast area of knowledge.

Duarte Sousa

I’m a LARSyS/INESC-ID researcher with an MSc degree in Interactive Media Design and transdisciplinary education plus professional experience. It led me to design my master’s study, focused on a series of multi-disciplinary practices, namely HCI, Design Research, and User-Centered Design which I seek to continue to explore in my current project.

Daniela Lopes

I am a doctoral student currently working on the DAnon research project funded by CMU Portugal at INESC-ID and Instituto Superior Técnico. I received my BSc and MSc degrees in Computer Science and Engineering from Técnico and specializing in Cyber Security and Distributed Systems. My main motivation is protecting users from censorship, privacy violations, and crime on the web.
