Doctoral Fellow at GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy-Ion Research, Darmstadt, Germany
(November 2011 - November 2015)
• Developed algorithms for digital signal processing, such as: feature extraction algorithms, moving convolution filters, clustering algorithms and Kalman filters.
• Implemented pulse shape analysis to perform tasks such as temperature-dependent gain stabilization, particle identification, pile-up discrimination.
• Experimental studies of CsI(Tl) based scintillation detectors (including PMT and APD read out photosensors) and gaseous ionization detectors.
• Developed software applications for online/offline data analysis of particle detectors raw data (using C++ based scientific data analysis framework).
• Implemented digital signal analysis algorithms to successfully discriminate events and extract statistical information (energies, momenta, time, multiplicities, etc.).
• Implemented data acquisition software and hardware which include fast ADCs.
• Was responsible for detector (calorimeter and ionization chamber) maintenance during experimental operation.
Hardware Engineer at IFIC - Nuclear Physics Institute, Valencia, Spain (Nov. 2010 - July 2011)
• Collaboration in the upgrade of the Tilecal/ATLAS back-end electronics.
• Contributed to the test and optimization of the FPGA firmware modules from the "GigaBit Transceiver" (GBT) architecture and protocol, that was proposed as the platform for data transmission in most of the physics experiments involved in the upgrade of the CERN LHC.
Research Scientist and Hardware Engineer at CFNUL Nuclear Physics Centre of the University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal (February 2009 - October 2010)
• Development of a didactic PET (Positron Emission Tomography) system.
• Designed and implemented the front-end’s fast analogue acquisition electronics.
• Designed the FPGA based DAQ and digital control system.
Research Scientist at Faculty of science, University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal
(January 2007 - September 2007)
