Prospective PhD Students

If you are interested in doing a PhD with me, drop me an email explaining your topics of interest and why you are interested in doing a PhD. Formally, you will have to apply to the CS PhD program in my department, but I am more than happy to guide you through the process. I also have various research collaborations with universities in Portugal and with Carnegie Mellon University, with which co-supervisions are often possible. If this is something you’d be interested in, I strongly urge you to contact me ASAP, since the timings and requirements to apply for these PhD programs can be very different from those at University of Porto.
