Hello!

I am a junior researcher at LaSIGE, at the Human Computer Interaction and Multimedia Research Team and soon a Ph.D. student at Faculdade de Ciência at the University of Lisbon.

Research focuses


My MSc Thesis was made in scope of Accessibility Evaluation of Web sites. I developed a new Automatic Accessibility Evaluator with the more recent accessibility standards (WCAG 2.0), which has a test-bed to its validation and is able to perform the evaluation in the static and transformed HTML in a fair way to compare them. The reporting mechanism is performed in EARL, taking templates into account and accompanied by a fair development metric.

I'm going to start my PhD research on Web Accessibility related with Cognitive Disabilies. I am still trying to decide the precise topic.

My interests in research currently are:

  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Usability
  • Acessibility
  • Cognitive Disabilies
  • Large scale universal usability studies
  • Mobile Web
  • Interactive computer graphics

I am involved in the following projects:
