      Academic Scientific Career

      My journey in engineering started at the age of 16. My professional academic career started at the age of 18 and it includes:

      • Scientific Initiation Fellow of University Centre Barao de Maua
      • Teaching Assistant of University of Sao Paulo
      • Lecturer at University Centre Barao de Maua
      • Member of the Coordination of Extension/Internship activities of University Centre Barao de Maua
      • Member of the Coordination of R&D projects of University Centre Barao de Maua
      • Visiting Lecturer in the MBA program of University of Parana
      • Teaching Assistant of Lancaster University
      • Teaching Assistant of UCL
      • Honorary Research Associate of UCL
      • Honorary Associate Professor of UCL
      • Associate Professor of Université du Québec
      • Guest Lecturer at Oxford University

      I’ve supervised/co-supervised over 20 BSc/MSc dissertations and projects, some of which were considered outstanding projects in software engineering (IoT, Smart Homes), and a project which became an embedded feature in the Microsoft Visual Studio. These projects were part of an alliance between UCL and organisations such as Microsoft, Satalia, Credit Suisse.

      During my PhD was a member of the Software Engineering Group at UCL, Digital City Exchange at Imperial College Business School and at the Senseable City Lab at MIT.

      I’ve published several research papers academic journals, books and conferences, am a frequent Keynote, conference and panel speaker (including TEDx). 

      I have been a committee member of the Grace Hopper Conference since 2014, and I am an elected member of the Technical and Professional Networks Communities Committee of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). I am also a judge and/or reviewer of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Global Research Competition, Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) Impact Grants Project Applications awards; and journals / papers of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Springer journals. I also chair the Tech London Advocates Smart Cities, and the R&D category of the IET Innovation Awards.

      PhD Thesis

      The Thesis

      The thesis provides a systematic framework to design of large and highly interconnected data infrastructures which are provided and supported by multiple stakeholders. A closed-loop supply chain model is designed and managed to explicitly consider the activities and processes that enables data and ML to be city-wide leveraged.

      Sponsorship and Awards

      This thesis was sponsored by the EPSRC, and received fellowships and awards from:

      Thesis Impact

      This thesis pioneered the concept of data as infrastructure for smart cities. It was used to design Urban platforms in the European Union (40+ cities), and the City Data Strategy of London Government. Chapters of this thesis have been published as a book to drive the industry on smart cities.
