My name is Telmo Menezes and I am a Computer Scientist and Hacker, with a background and strong interest in Complex Systems and Computational Intelligence. I also love to build cool stuff. I use this site as a repository of information about my projects, publications, and anything else I believe worthy of sharing with the world.
Current appointment: Postdoc researcher at the Centre d’Analyse et de Mathématique Sociales (CAMS), a lab affiliated with L’École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) and the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).
Research interests: Complex Systems, Network Science, Multi-Agent Simulations, Genetic Programming, Artificial Life, Bio-Inspired Algorithms.
- Postdoc researcher at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), more specifically at the Complex Systems Institute (ISC-PIF) and the Centre for Research in Applied Epistemology (CREA).
- PhD student at the University of Coimbra, affiliated with the Evolutionary and Complex Systems Group (ECOS) of the Centre for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (CISUC), with a fellowship from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
I was born in Coimbra, Portugal in 1976 and took both my BSc and PhD degrees in Computer Science at the University of Coimbra. I developed a software module as part of a larger project for NASA. Later I worked for a mobile search startup company in Cambridge, UK. During my PhD work, I developed a new type of agent controller, called the gridbrain, that allows for embedded evolution in the context of multi-agent simulations. Shortly after finishing my PhD, I moved to Paris, where I have been holding positions as a Postdoctoral Researcher. One of the focuses of my current work discovery of the low level mechanisms that underlie the genesis and topology of Complex Networks.
