I am interested in studying new ways to use image and video, make them easy to use, search and be recognizable to the computer. In general I like computer graphics, computer vision, multimedia, intelligent algorithms and cool new interaction devices! I am currently a researcher in IMG at the Computer Science Department of the Faculty of Sciences and Technologies of the New University of Lisbon (NOVA). I have a Master degree in Informatics Engineering.
