Research Overview

Professor Esteves-Veríssimo is currently interested in architectures, middleware and algorithms for resilient modular and distributed computing. It is increasingly believed that Resilient Computing will become the main paradigm for achieving secure and dependable operation of computer systems and networks in a near future, improving classic Cybersecurity techniques. This is due to important intrinsic characteristics of this B.o.K., such as: common approach to accidental and malicious faults/attacks; incremental and adaptive protection against polymorphic threat surfaces; elasticity, plasticity and sustainability. To this end, he investigates such paradigms and techniques reconciling security and dependability, as well as novel ways to apply them in order to achieve system resilience, in areas like: autonomous vehicles from earth to space; distributed control systems; digital health and genomics; SDN-based infrastructures; or blockchain and cryptocurrencies. Esteves-Veríssimo also has a solid systems and engineering track record, having contributed to the design and engineering of several advanced industrial prototypes of distributed, fault-tolerant, secure or real-time systems, emerging from R&D projects he took part in.
