Name:João Paulo Fernandes

I am an Assistant Professor at the Informatics Engineering Department of the University of Coimbra, Portugal.

My research is focused on the rigorous analysis and transformation of software, with the goal of optimizing its non-functional properties while still ensuring its functional correctness. Ever since 2014, my attention has especially been drawn to optimizing the energy efficiency of software systems, an area in which I try to provide developers with information and tools to support the development of energy efficient software and at the same time that I seek to support end users, namely of mobile devices, in adopting more efficient usage patterns. In these contexts, I have founded and/or am involved in projects and initiatives such as GreenHub, Green Sw Lab and GreenHaskell.

Currently, I am also a member of the Center for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (CISUC).

In the past, I have held different types of positions in several institutions such as the University of Minho (Monitor, 2002-2004), the Polytechnic Institute of Porto (Assistant Professor, 2008-2010), the University of Porto, Faculty of Engineering (Assistant Professor, 2010-2012) and the University of Beira Interior (Assistant Professor, 2012-2016).

I have graduated in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Minho, in 2004 (best of class, with an average score of 17/20), having conducted my graduation thesis under the PURe project.

Later, in March 2009, I have received my Ph.D. degree from the same university, following my work on the Design, Implementation and Calculation of Circular Programs.
