Ego Research Keywords


This is where you find EGO, my professional self.

Research and teaching occupy a big space within what makes me tick, which means I'm really lucky in the sense that I do exactly what I like in life! :-)

Enjoy your visit!

EGO "dubito, ergo cogito, ergo sum"? – Short CV
Joćo Filipe de Castro Cardoso Ferreira is an Invited Assistant Professor (Professor Auxiliar Convidado) at the University of Coimbra.

Degrees: Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Coimbra, specialisation in Instrumentation and Control (July 2011) on the subject "Bayesian Cognitive Models for 3D Structure and Motion Multimodal Perception".

He received his Electrical Engineering B.Sc. degree (5-year course, specialisation in computers) from the Faculty of Sciences and Technology, University of Coimbra (FCTUC) in July 2000. He received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the same faculty, specialisation in Automation and Robotics, in January 2005.

Research interests: His current main research interests are spread out through three broad scientific themes: Artificial Cognition, Probabilistic Modelling and Autonomous Systems. Within these themes, the following topics receive his main focus: bioinspired perception, navigation and cognition, autonomous robotics, social robotics and human-robot interaction. However, his research interests are not limited to these subjects: over the years, he has also produced contributions in medical image processing and 3D scanning, and will most probably pursue other interesting challenges in the future.

Present research: He conducts his research at the Mobile Robotics Laboratory of the Institute of Systems and Robotics (ISR), a research institute of the Electrical Engineering Department (DEEC) of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra (FCTUC). He also frequently collaborates with the Biomedical Institute for Research in Light and Image (IBILI), of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra.

He is a staff researcher at the ISR since 1999, and a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) since 2012.

Projects: He was a staff researcher for the FCTUC team on the European Integrated Project "Bayesian Approach to Cognitive Systems" (FP6-IST-27140), from 2006 to 2010, and a research fellow for the European Integrated Project HANDLE "Developmental pathway towards autonomy and dexterity in robot in-hand manipulation" (theme 2: Cognitive Systems, Interaction, Robotics, under grant agreement 231640) from 2010 to 2011.

He is currently the Principal Investigator (PI) for the FCT/COMPETE nationally funded project CASIR (Coordinated Control of Stimulus-Driven and Goal-Directed Multisensory Attention Within the Context of Social Interaction with Robots - PTDC/EEI-AUT/3010/2012)
