Computer Engineering

José Carlos Rufino Amaro (José Rufino / José Amaro) holds a MSc degree in Distributed Systems (thesis on Applied Cryptography, in 1998) and a PhD in Parallel and Distributed Systems (thesis on Distributed Hash Tables, in 2008), both from University of Minho, in Portugal.

He has been a teacher (currently a Coordinator Professor) at the Technology and Management School (ESTiG), of the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB), also in Portugal. Since 1995, he has taught several Computer Engineering related subjects (Operating Systems, Computer Architecture, Computer Networks, Management of Systems and Networks, Parallel Computing, etc.). He was the head of the Informatics Engineering degree several times (1997 to 2002, and 2014 to 2019). He has been in charge of the ESTiG Laboratory of Advanced Computing since 2004, of the ESTiG IT Centre since 2009, and of the IPB scientific/cluster computing infrastructures since 2010.

He led a project that deployed one of the first wireless community networks in Portugal, in the early 2000's, in the context of the Digital Cities initiative. Since then, he participated in several other national and international R&D projects, in key areas of Computer Engineering (with a main focus in Parallel/Distributed Computing), and also in High Energy Physics and Bio-Informatics. He was (2013-2018) an integrated member (still a collaborator) of the portuguese Laboratory of Instrumentation and Experimental Particle Physics (LIP) and then become an integrated member of the Research Centre in Digitalization and Intelligent Robotics (CeDRI) at IPB (2019-). He co-authored several peer-reviewed papers, in a broad range of topics, including wireless networks, distributed hash tables, message passing, information retrieval, heterogeneous computing, system virtualization, numerical optimization, modeling and simulation, and genomics.
