Andreia Sofia Teixeira


I am an Invited Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics of Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal).

I am also a PhD Student of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal). I have been a junior researcher at IDSS group/ INESC-ID since 2010, and a member of the ATP group since 2016.

In my Ph.D. I work under the supervision of Alexandre P. Francisco and Francisco C. Santos.

My research interests are:

  • Graph Theory/Algorithms on Graphs
  • Network Science/Complex Systems
  • Computational Social Sciences
  • Computational Biology
  • Evolutionary Game Theory

My research work is focused on the development of computational models and simulation frameworks to understand collective dynamics, specifically in what concerns the evolution of biological and social systems.

In 2017 (June and July), I was also as an invited junior researcher in Kyushu University, Japan, contributing to the the BIRD’s Research Project in Task 1 – Algorithms for Sequence Analysis – and Task 2 – Compression and Indexing Techniques for Repetitive Data.
