Bio

I am an Invited Assistant Professor and researcher at the University of Madeira and the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute in Portugal. Since February 2016 I am the Portuguese coordinator of the Professional Masters on Human-Computer Interaction program that we offer in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon University. I teach for the Informatics Engineering and Interactive Media Design programs. My research focus is on the development and assessment of virtual reality technologies for neurorehabilitation. I am co-principal investigator and co-founder of the NeuroRehabLab research group (http://neurorehabilitation.m-iti.org), an interdisciplinary research group that investigates at the intersection of technology, neuroscience and clinical practice to find novel solutions to increase the quality of life of those with special needs. Previously, I worked at the Synthetic, Perceptive, Emotive and Cognitive Systems Laboratory at the University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain; the Institute of Neuroinformatics, ETH-Z├╝rich, Switzerland, and was a visiting scholar at the Quality of Life Technologies Center of the Carnegie Mellon University.
