About me


I began my studies in Marco de Canaveses, Portugal my hometown. After graduating from high school I moved out to Porto, PT to enroll in the Masters in Electrical and Computers and Engineering programme in FEUP, having finished it in 2011 (have a look at my MSc. thesis webpage).

Parallelly i have been involved in several software/hardware open-source projects, not only on an individual basis, but also contributing to larger ones.

I dropped out the Informatics Engineering PhD (was researching in LIACC/ITPorto, with a FCT Fellowship) and am currently working for Preto Inc., with its headquarters in CA, US.
