Bio

Pedro Ricardo Morais Inácio was born in Covilhã, Portugal, in 1982. Holds a 5-year B.Sc. degree in Mathematics/Computer Science and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering, obtained from the Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI), Portugal, in 2005 and 2009 respectively. The Ph.D. work was performed in the enterprise environment of Nokia Siemens Networks Portugal S.A., through a Ph.D. grant from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology.

He is a professor of Computer Science at UBI since 2010, where he lectures subjects related with information assurance and security, programming of mobile devices and computer based simulation, to graduate and undergraduate courses, namely to the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. programmes in Computer Science and Engineering. He is currently the Head of the Department of Computer Science of UBI. He is an instructor of the UBI Cisco Academy.

He is an IEEE senior member and a researcher of the Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT). His main research topics are information assurance and security, computer based simulation, and network traffic monitoring, analysis and classification. He has about 30 publications in the form of book chapters and papers in international peer-reviewed books, conferences and journals. He frequently reviews papers for IEEE, Springer, Wiley and Elsevier journals. He has been member of the Technical Program Committee of international conferences such as the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - Track on Networking. He was one of the chairs of WISARC 2016.
