Short Bio

Since 2007, she is a member of the Ambient Intelligence Laboratory (AmILab) of the Cognitive and Media Systems (CMS) group, integrated in the Center for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (CISUC). Her research is dedicated mainly to the way urban spaces are organized and how people use them by influencing patterns of mobility and land use analysis. The information to support this analysis is mined primarily from the Web and social networks and consists mostly of textual data. Learning to interconnect and represent this information is also an interesting research challenge she is devoted.

She is also an Assistant Professor at Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra (IPC), Coimbra Institute of Engineering (ISEC), since 2000, lecturing courses on programming, operating systems and ubiquitous computing.

She holds a Ph.D. in Science and Information Technology since 2012, MSc. in Informatics and Systems in 2004 (pre-bolonha), and a 5-year Bachelor degree in Informatics Engineering in 2000 from the University of Coimbra.

She is also member of sicentific associations such as: Portuguese Artificial Intelligence Association (APPIA - Associação Portuguesa Para a Inteligência Artificial); Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL); and Registered researcher at the Foundation for Science and Technology (Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia).
