PhD: I understand HCI from a problem-solving perspective, enriched by a socially responsible view. Currently I am interested on different areas and topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities, Software Requirements, Software Quality, Informatics in Education and Information Systems. I investigate and approach my research topics from a Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) perspective, which a like to refer as a "Socially Aware Perspective" to the design of interactive technology. The papers I listed in the home page and their references will give you an idea on what I am talking about. Whatever your research interest, if you wanna investigate it from a socially aware perspective, contact me and we can share some ideas. 

Master Degree: please visit the Department of Computer Science's webpage to see the deadline for the next admission process. The recommendations for PhD candidates are useful for you as well.

Current topics of interests:
* Agile Methods, Participatory Design: techniques, artifacts and tools -- teaching and practice;
* Social Networks: analysis, visualization, features, information dissemination and retrieval, impacts, design, etc;
* Problem Understanding: concepts, methods, tools, practices;
* Internet of Things: Requirements Engineering, Problem Understanding, HCI design and evaluation methods and artifacts 
* Artificial Intelligence and Human Values, ethics, culture;

* Trends and new topics from HCI perspective: Internet of Things, Brain-Computer Interaction, Computational Thinking, Privacy, Security, etc.

I appreciate candidates that enjoy investigating new issues in technology (design, implementation, use, evaluation, adoption, impact), and that want to change the world for better via technology. Participatory Design, eDemocracy, e-Citizenship, Ethics, Culture and Human Values are fields that interest me a lot. If that motivates you, we can do a good job together! :)
