I am Chief Architect for Inteligent Cloud Operations at Huawei Munich Research Center in Munich, Germany. I am also Associate Professor at the University of Coimbra (Portugal), and affiliated to the Information Systems Group.
My current research involves the development of the next generation of AI-driven IT Operations tools and platforms. This field in nowadays generally called AIOps (artificial intelligence for IT operations). In planet-scale deployments, the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of cloud platforms cannot be done any longer manually or simply with off-the-shelf solutions. It requires self-developed automated systems, ideally exploiting the use of AI to provide tools for autonomous cloud operations. My research looks into how deep learning, machine learning learning, distributed traces, graph analysis, time-series analysis (sequence analysis), and log analysis can be used to effectively detect and localize anomalous cloud infrastructure behaviors during operations to reduce the workload of human operators. These techniques are typically applied to Big Data coming from microservice observability data.
My group is currently developing the iForesight system which is being used to evaluate this new O&M approach. iForesight 3.0 is the result of more than 2 years of research with the goal to provide an intelligent new tool aimed at SRE cloud maintenance teams. It enables them to quickly detect, localize and predict anomalies thanks to the use of artificial intelligence when cloud services are slow or unresponsive.
The basic research areas we touch and integrate include:
- Cloud computing.
- Machine learning.
- Deep learning.
- Distributed systems.
- Software reliability.
They are applied to create new and innovative systems for:
- AI-driven Cloud Operations
- Fault prevention, prediction, detection, localization, and recovery.
- Planet-scale monitoring of distributed systems
- Applied machine learning for predictive software maintenance
- Natural Language Processing for systems’ behaviour analysis.
I currently have a few open positions for PhD students, postdocs, or professionals that would like to work with us to improve and extend with new ideas our system to release iForesight 3.0.

A good researcher says, "Lets find out", others say "Nobody knows". When a good researcher makes a mistake, he says, I was wrong", others say "It wasn't my fault". A good researcher works harder than others and has more time. Others are always "too busy" to do what is necessary.
