Professor Victor Lobo has a 5 year degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from IST-University of Lisbon, a MSc and PhD in Computer Science (specialization in Artificial Intelligence) at NOVA SST (with a co-Supervisor from SDSU-USA), and Habilitation in Information Management (specialization in Decision Support Systems), also at the NOVA University. He served for almost 3 years in active duty as Naval Reserve Officer, and stay on as a civilian at the Portuguese Naval Academy where he is, since 2014, Full Professor. Professor Lobo was a member of the Stand-up Committee of the Naval Research Center (CINAV), then Deputy Director for three years, and Director of CINAV until 2019, having overseen all the setting up and development of the center. He has been invited professor at the New University of Lisbon, at NOVA Information Management School (NOVA-IMS), for over 18 years, and has been visiting professor at the French Naval Academy, at the Faculty of Science of Technology of the New University of Lisbon, and at ISCTE-Lisbon, and faculty adjunct San Diego State University. He has worked in several research projects, both as researcher and as Principal Investigator. He has supervised 6 PhD students, 51 MSc, and 50 final projects (of 5 year engineering degree students), and is the author of over 150 scientific papers in journals and conference proceedings. He has participated as researcher, principal investigator, institution or general coordinator in over 30 research projects.
