Computer Science

Paulo Martins, Ph.D.Paulo Martins is an Associate Professor in Computer Science and Researcher since 1995 at Chaminade. He currently lectures Operating Systems, Computer Networks and Programming Languages. In 2000 he was awarded a DPhil (PhD) titled "Schedulability of Mode Changes in Flexible Real-Time Distributed Systems" by the Computer Science Department, Real-time Systems Group, at the University of York (UK), under the supervision of professor Alan Burns. His research interests cover a number of aspects of real-time systems including scheduling and timing analysis, mode changes and wireless sensor networks. The work is highly motivated by real-world applications especially regarding mode changes. He is a member of The Institute of Electrical and Electronic (IEEE) Engineers and the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM).
