I have a PhD degree in Informatics, from FCUL - Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa, in the field of Video, Hypermedia and Learning Technology

I have a Master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, from IST-Instituto Superior Técnico. My thesis was on Distributed Hypermedia.  

I graduated in Computer Science (Applied Mathematics), also from FCUL-Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa. On my last year research project, I worked in the field of Expert Systems (Artificial Intelligence).

Along the years, I've also been taking some courses in topics related with psychology and pedagogy.
