About

I was born in St.Petersburg, Russia, to Cape Verdean parents who were both studying meteorology abroad. I grew up in Cape Verde, and moved to Portugal for my own abroad university studies, in Viana do Castelo. I studied Computer Graphics and Multimedia and got acquainted with topics as broad as programming, 3D modeling and animation, image, sound and video processing, and web development. After I completed the undergraduate degree, I moved to Braga to do my masters in the prestigious Minho university. I chose computer graphics as my main specialization, where I deepened my knowledge of the area, by studying topics in photorealistic illumination, virtual reality, 3D rendering and image processing. During the course of the masters, I worked for six months in the computer graphics center (CCG) in Guimarães, a research institute closely related to the Minho university. Then, during the last semester of the master's, I did an 8-month internship in Vicomtech, a research institute in San Sebastian, Spain, working on facial recognition technology, from which my master's thesis was produced. As I approached the end of my master's, and by suggestion of my master's supervisor, I applied to a PhD in computer generated holography, also under his supervision. This topic of 3D visualization and interaction has always interested me, so I am glad to be working in research that might help make interactive holography a reality.
