Armando Jorge Miranda de Sousa received his PhD in 2004, in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at University of Porto - Faculty of Engineering (FEUP). His thesis work was in the subarea of Robotics and Automation. He is currently an Auxiliary Professor in the ECE department of FEUP and an integrated researcher at Centre for Intelligent and Industrial Systems (CRIIS) at the INESC TEC interface institute. He earned in 2014 the international pedagogical certification "ING.PAED.IGIP" from the International Society for Engineering Pedagogy. His main research areas include Automation, Robotics and Higher Education. As a frequent participant in robotic contests, he has earned several national and international merits (examples: vice champion of RoboCup Robotic Soccer in 2006, winner of Autonomous Driving of Portuguese Robotics Open of 2019). He has also earned educational awards such as the University of Porto (UP) excellence award in 2015 and 10 best at ECEL 2015 excellence e-learning awards. He has published over 80 indexed peer reviewed articles both in pedagogical issues and more technical areas. He also has an active patent entitled "Device and method for identifying a cork stopper and respective kit". He is also involved in educational and technical funded projects such as "IntelWheels 2" and "EIT CPPS 101". He is the PI for FEUP for the "Replant" mobilizer project. https://www.cienciavitae.pt/en/1C17-7D93-4CF3
