Software scientist excited about all areas involving computing, automation and complex systems. I have gained experience managing software projects from customer specifications to end-user approval. I entered into the programming field in a somehow indirect way, as I studied Architecture but learned how to program building shapes through UEL’s Master’s Degree in Computing and Design. From then on I became fascinated by non-deterministic algorithms, and eventually wrote a doctoral thesis versing on stochastic methods for solving some civil engineering problems, using concepts from Physics. The thesis overviews the numerical methods involved in the analysis of structures and the potential improvements that can be achieved by means of an energy-based approach. The second part of the thesis explores the applications of Monte Carlo and other stochastic-based methods into the development of optimal designs. I’m amazed by the Artificial Intelligence and the way it’ s already changing the world, and it is where I wish to develop my Professional Career.
