An Associate Professor of Computer Science at University of California, Irvine, she received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior T?cnico, in Lisbon, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Northeastern University, in Boston. Prior to being a professor, she was a Research Scientist at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center PARC. While there, she was most known as a founder of the group that developed Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) and started aspectj.org. More recently, she has been working in ubiquitous computing, with a focus in communication mechanisms that are pervasive, secure and intuitive for humans to perceive and interact with. She is a member of the ICSE 2012 , ICSM 2012, and OOPSLA 2012 Conference Program Committees. Included in the most recent publications she has co-authored are: "Mote-based Underwater Sensor Networks: Opportunities, Challenges, and Guidelines", Telecommunication Systems Journal (Kluwer), March, 2008, with R. Jurdak, A.G. Ruzzelli, and G.M.P. O'Hare; "Adaptive Low Power Listening for Wireless Sensor Networks," IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing. Volume 6, Issue 8, pp. 988-1004. August, 2007, with R. Jurdak, and P. Baldi; and "Reliable Symbol Synchronization in Acoustic Sensor Networks," Proceedings of IEEE GlobeCom, Washington, D.C., 2007, with R. Jurdak, A. G. Ruzzelli, and G.M.P. O'Hare.
