About me

I’m a postdoc at Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where I’m working on machine learning models for understanding urban mobility and the behaviour of crowds, with emphasis on the effect of special events in mobility and transportation systems. I hold a PhD from University of Coimbra (Portugal), during which I worked on probabilistic models for learning from crowdsourced data. I have several ongoing research collaborations with various other researchers at the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Lab at MIT, where I was a visiting student and at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) Centre, where I worked as an invited research fellow.

My research interests include:

  • Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition
  • Crowdsourcing and Learning from Crowds
  • Probabilistic Graphical Models and Bayesian inference
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems and Urban Mobility
  • Topic Modeling and Natural Language Processing
