I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Statistical Visual Computing Lab (SVCL) with Prof. Nuno Vasconcelos at the University of California, San Diego. Before arriving to UC San Diego, I earned both B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa in 2010 and 2012, respectively.

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning. Specifically, my research focuses on developing learning and deployment frameworks that enable deep learning to operate with restricted labeled data and restricted computing power. As such, I maintain an active interest in areas such as zero-shot, low-shot learning and other transfer learning problems, self-supervised learning, multimodal supervision, and efficient training and deployment procedures.

Before starting my Ph.D. studies, I worked with Prof. Margarida Silveira in the automatic diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and its onset stages, from multiple brain imaging modalities such as MRI and PET.

I am on the job market this year. I am looking for academic or industry research positions.
