He is also a senior researcher at INESC TEC and coordinates the Computer Graphics and Virtual environments area of the CSIG (Center for Informations Systems and Computer Graphics).
Graduated in Systems and Informatics Engineering at Minho University in 1998. During his PhD he researched in the area of 3D reconstruction from Images divided between Philips Research, Eindhoven, and Minho University, until he concluded in 2006. He worked in the industry in the field of interactive systems, until he joined FEUP as Invited Assistant Professor in 2009, to teach and research in the areas of Computer Graphics, Interaction and Gaming. He is also a collaborator at INESC TEC/INESC Porto and was the director of the Multimedia Masters of University of Porto between 2015 and 2019.
Rui Nóbrega is a former post-doc researcher at INESC TEC and former Invited Auxiliary Professor at University of Porto in the Faculty of Engineering (DEI-FEUP). He has a Computer Science Ph.D. degree (Doutoramento em Informática) and has been involved in several computer software projects in collaboration with private companies, public institutions and academia. He studied at the Faculty of Science and Technology in the NOVA University of Lisbon, obtaining degrees in Computer Science (Ph.D.) and Computer Software Engineering (M.Sc., B.Sc.).
Holds a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Universidade do Porto in the area of computer vision (2009). Currently he is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics Engineering, Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, and a researcher at INESC TEC. Previously he was a researcher at INESC Porto (2001-2008), Visiting Researcher at the University of Victoria (2006), and Senior Scientist at Fraunhofer AICOS (2008-2013).
