I joined CMUP in November 2022, in the section "Probability and Statistics" and lines "Computational Mathematics" and "Mathematical Models and Applications". I am presently associate professor at FCUP's Department of Computer Science. My background is mainly in operational research, and most of my past research involves methods for solving combinatorial optimization problems, sometimes in stochastic or game-theoretic contexts. I am also interested in machine learning, in particular when involving decision processes, as in the case of data-driven optimization. I tend to favor subjects with practical applications.
