Name:Vasco Amaral

Vasco Amaral is currently Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the Faculty of Science and Technology at UNL (Universidade Nova de Lisboa ). He is also a researcher (integrated member) of NOVA LINCS. Previously, He has worked at international institutes like DESY at the Hera-B experiment and CERN at the ATLAS Experiment as a research collaborator at LIP. In 2005, he obtained his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Mannheim (with a grant by Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia do Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia) and the BSc in 1998 at IST ( Universidade de Lisboa). He was until recently vice-chair of the Multi-Paradigm Modelling for Cyber-Physical Systems IC1404 COST Action.

He promotes rigorous use in Software Engineering of software models and processes to build rapidly better software systems and cyberphysical systems, ensuring Quality both in the process and the solution. This entails providing tools, processes, and modelling languages (not discarding their Usability) that cope with the engineering of complex multidisciplinary systems and empower not only software engineers but also experts from various scientific and engineering domains to cooperate consistently in building their solutions.
