What book are you currently reading?
1Q84, Haruki Murakami (big fan!).
How would you explain to your child (or your parents or grandparents) what your job is? How do you explain what means to be a researcher in this area?
I work in making it easier for people to interact with computers through meaningful visual representations that gather their attention, personalize content in a way that it it aesthetically pleasing according to people’s preferences and needs.
How do you see the mission of INESC-ID “ to produce added value to people and society, supporting the response of public policies to scientific, health, environmental, cultural, social, economic and political challenges, in the fields of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering”?
INESC-ID has a very wide variety of projects going on, with team members that encompass different competences, making it a rich environment for the exchange of ideas. The development of these ideas has, and will most certainly continue to lead to extremely relevant results, with impact on a most ample range of activities on health, environmental, cultural, social, economic and political fields.
