PhD University of Porto, Portugal
Lecturer, Integrated PhD Researcher

Ricardo Severino received a Ph.D. (2015) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Porto, Portugal. He also holds a B.Sc. (2004), a Licentiate (2006), and a M.Sc. (2008) degree in Electric and Computer Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Porto – School of Engineering, Portugal.

Ricardo joined the CISTER Research Centre in 2006 to design and implement a Cooperating Objects testbed with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and multiple UGVs. Since then, he has been working in the area of WSNs, namely in improving Quality-of-Service (QoS) for large-scale WSN infrastructures, mostly relying on COTS and standard technologies.

In this line, he actively participated in the ART-WiSe and Open-ZB research frameworks, and in several national and international projects related to WSNs, carrying out his M.Sc. and Ph.D. work in synergy with several of them (EMMON - FP7 JU on Embedded Monitoring, CONET - FP7 NoE on Cooperating Objects, SENODs). In 2009, his M.Sc. work was awarded with the EWSN'09 Best MSc Thesis Award at the prestigious European Conference on Wireless Sensor Networks (EWSN'09).

Ricardo has also been involved in multiple open-source projects, mostly related to the implementation of the IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee protocols, in particular within the Open-ZB project and in the context of the TinyOS15.4-WG and ZigBee-WG working groups, of which he is also a founding member.

He has several publications in reputed conferences (e.g. EWNS, MASS, RTCSA, ECRTS) and journals (e.g. Springer Telecomunication Systems/Communication Networks, IEEE TII) and has served as a reviewer for several conferences (e.g. EWSN, RTSS, IEEE ETFA, SUTC, VTC) and journals (e.g. ACM TOSN, Elsevier COMCOM, Journal of Green Engineering).
