About Me

I am a student in Computer Science Engineering at the University of Lisbon, Faculty of Science. Since October 2011, I am also a member of HCIM research group.


Research

Since I joined the HCIM I've been working on the project GUIDE (Gentle User Interfaces for Elderly Users), a project with aims at automatic UI adaptation of applications and services to the specific impairments and preferences of elderly users.

Under this project, I have developed prototypes of applications that make use of user interface technologies, such as gesture interaction, voice control, avatars, second multi-touch screen devices and gyroscopic remote controls.

My interests in research currently are:

  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Multimodal interaction
  • Adaptive Multimodal Interfaces
  • Usability
  • Acessibility

Projects

I am involved in the following projects:


Student Volunteer

Mentor in the Program of Adaptation to Faculty between 2007 and 2009 and 2012 (four semesters).

The PAF is a mentoring-type project organized by the Office of Psychological Support in collaboration with the departments of FCUL. The objectives are to promote a rapid and effective integration into the academic world, promoting supportive relationships between new students, older students and teachers, and also the promotion of good academic performance.
