Name: Tiago José Lopes Gonçalves
I'm Tiago Gonçalves, a PhD candidate of Informatics, specialty in Informatics Engineering, at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa --FCUL). I graduated (2009) and have a master (2011) in Informatics Engineering also from FCUL. Since August 2010, I'm a member of the XLDB research group within LaSIGE.
My PhD research is related to the visualization and interaction with spatio-temporal information, more specifically, mobility/trajectory data.
I have also participated in research regarding the visualization and interaction with geographic information systems on mobile devices, particularly in the area of off-screen visualization.
Overall, my research interests include:
Mobile Computing and Visualization
Geographic Information Systems
Visualization of Spatio-Temporal Data
Sinteligis : Services for Intelligent Geographical Information Systems
MobileAR : Mobile Augmented Reality
VisMobile : Visualization on Mobile Devices
I've been assigned as reviewer or sub-reviewer for:
