I am a tenured assistant professor at the Department of Informatics Engineering, University of Coimbra since 1986, when I received my PhD in Computer Engineering.
My research interests are within software as an engineering activity, along its three axis:people, processes and technologies. On the technology perspective I've been working on Dependable Computing. On the process side I've been teaching and consulting from loose Agile to hard-core CMMI. On the people perspective, I'm currently working on the gamification experience for software teams as a way to promote process adoption. From 2007 to 2012 I was Adjunct Associate Professor at the Institute for Software Research of Carnegie-Mellon University.
I have managed more than ten International projects, founded two successful startups, was head of my Department at the University as well as Director of the Laboratory for Informatics and Systems of IPN, a Industry-University interface.
