João Pedro Leal Abalada De Matos Carvalho


João Pedro Carvalho was born in Almada, Portugal, in 1993. He received his MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineer from FCT NOVA (Portugal) in 2017, finishing in the top 1% of the students graduating in that year, and his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineer in 2021. From 2020 until the current data he is a junior researcher at COPELABS- ULHT.   He participated in 2 international research projects, 2 national research projects, and helped co-supervising four MSc students and is currently supervising one PhD student. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, Lisbon, where he lectures several undergraduate courses and two graduate courses. He was also one of co-editors of a book and a member of organising committee of DOCEIS international conference. He has been working in the Aerial Robotics Research and Development field since 2016. He received Best Paper Award “UAV downwash dynamic texture features for terrain classification on autonomous navigation”, in a prestigious IEEE conference in 2018.
