Interests

I am Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon (UL, Portugal), and senior researcher at GAIPS/INESC-ID.

My research focuses on different topics of scientific computing and simulation of complex systems, including population dynamics, the evolution of cooperation, network science and environmental governance.

Previously, I was FRS-FNRS Chargé de Recherches at MLG/Université Libre de Bruxelles, Investigador Auxiliar at CENTRIA/Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and a Marie Curie PhD Fellow at IRIDIA-CoDE//Université Libre de Bruxelles.

Please find below a list of published articles after 2012. For further information and pdf files of these and other articles, please check my webpage or my google scholar profile.
