About

I was born and raised in Porto, Portugal, where I got a MSc in Informatics Engineering and Computing at the Faculty of Engineering between 2010 and 2015. I worked in Portugal until 2017, when I moved to Copenhagen, where I am currently based.

After finishing my degree, I started working at FCo. Fullservice Company in Multimedia, a Portuguese company which specializes in multimedia systems and solutions for cultural, heritage and corporate entities. Since I've moved to Copenhagen I've been working at Saxo Bank as a frontend developer, working mostly with Javascript.

I am a warm and social person, who establishes new acquaintances and friendships rapidly. Besides developing software I also enjoy taking on leadership roles and new challanges.

Previous work experience

FCo. (July 2015 - December 2016)
At FCo. I designed, implemented and deployed solutions for cultural institutions, inculding large interactive screens, inventory management software and e-learning web systems. I also managed and maintained the IT infrastructure.

FEUP (2012 - 2014)
I was a TA (Teaching Assistant) at FEUP for 4 semesters during my 2nd and 3rd years, for the following courses:

Other
I have also done freelancer work as a web developer for different entities, developing, mostly, small static websites or simple database driven systems.

I was a volunteer at several conferences between 2009 and 2016, usually taking care of the IT infrastructure and providing general support to conference delegates and organizing committee alike. All of the conferences were organized by the Green Lines Institute. I also developed the registration system for the conferences wich manages abstracts, papers, peer reviews and payment details.

Interests

I enjoy learning languages and therefore have studied German for a total of about 3 years and Danish for 18 months, which has lead me to being able to communicate at an Intermediate level in both.

I'm a hobbyist electronics enthusiast - I tinker with raspberry PIs and arduinos whenever I have some time, and can solder somewhat decently. Recently I have also been interested in 3D printing.

When it comes to software engineering, my main interest is design/architecture. I really enjoy figuring out which components to use in a project and how they go together. I am also interested in computer graphics and game development. Most of my work has been in the web development field, which has led me to develop interest in UI/UX design.

Academics

I hold a Master's degree in Informatics Engineering and Computing from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. I finished my Master's in 2015, when I sucesfully defended my dissertation entitled A computer vision approach to drone-based traffic analysis in road intersections.

I spent a semester in Nürnberg, Germany, under the Erasmus program. There, I studied at the Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm.
