Outreach (and other projects)
Beyond scientific work, I've had the wonderful opportunity to be involved in a number of activities that often defy explanation. As such, this page serves as a portfolio of these extra-curricular activities.
Musical Summary of a Talk
Composed and performed a song that reenacts a complete online seminar with Q&A, to be used due to the lack of an actual recording of the seminar.
BE ADVISED: Might contain out-of-tune singing.
GAIPS 2020 Christmas Carol
Wrote a small screenplay for a Christmas video for GAIPS, staring our robots, and helped code the robots' behaviours.
Edited the video using the worst possible video editor.
GAIPS 2019 Christmas Card
Designed a terrible looking Christmas Card, that was sent from the Robots to all members of GAIPS.
Yes, that is a mask of Cristiano Ronaldo. Because why not.
Ciência19 Meeting with ASTRo
Ran a small autonomous demo of ASTRo interacting with the attendance of Ciência19, the largest encounter of Portuguese Researchers.
Everything worked. ASTRo was happy.
Technology for the Elderly
Helped run a couple of demos of social robots for an event organized by "Santa Casa da Misericórdia", the largest Portuguese charity.
Had to transport over 30 kgs of heavy equipment through the steep medieval streets of Bairro Alto in Lisbon, Portugal.
