I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisboa. Most of my investigation is carried out at the LaSIGE - Large Scale Informatic Systems Laboratory and the Navigators´s group, where I co-lead the fault and intrusion tolerance area.

Research interests focus mainly in distributed and parallel systems, especially in aspects related to dependability and security. Most of my investigation has been in models, protocols and architectures that are suitable for applications with strong dependability requirements, namely applications that need to remain operational despite accidental faults or malicious attacks. The kind of environments that have been considered include cyber-physical (electrical) infrastructures, cloud computing, internet-based distributed applications, mobile networks and computing with small hand-held devices, and scalable servers either supporting distributed transactions or parallel processing.

Currently, I am principal investigator at the SEGRID (Security for smart Electricity GRIDs) European project, and coordinate the SITAN (Services for Intrusion Tolerant Ad Hoc Networks) national project. I am also involved in the European project BiobankClouds (Scalable, Secure Storage of Biobank Data).
