About me

I am a PhD student at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST, Lisboa), institution where I also completed an MSc in Computer Science (2013), with a semester as exchange student at TU Delft (dissertation on the evolution of fairness in a group context). I work as a research assistant at GAIPS (INESC-ID ) and I am a member of the ATP-Group . I served as teaching assistant at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of IST, lecturing practical classes of Introduction to Algorithms and Data Structures (Spring 2016) and Object Oriented Programming ( Fall 2014, Fall 2015, Fall 2016).

My research work is focused on the development of computational models to simulate and understand collective dynamics, specifically in what concerns the evolution of non-trivial behaviors such as cooperation and fairness. At the moment, I am concerned with 1) the role played by social norms and reputation systems in the evolution of cooperation; 2) the emergence of fairness in games involving groups and 3) the dynamics of strategic interactions that involve multiple sectors of a society.

I work under the supervision of Francisco C. Santos, Jorge M. Pacheco and Ana Paiva.

From January to March 2017 I was a visiting student at Université Libre de Bruxelles, working under the supervision of Prof. Tom Lenearts (Machine Learning Group).

Currently, I am a visiting student research collaborator (VSRC) at Princeton University, working under the supervision of Prof. Simon A. Levin (Levin Lab, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology).
