João F. Ferreira

I am a PhD student under the supervision of Roland Backhouse from the University of Nottingham and Luis Soares Barbosa from the University of Minho.

My project is on Algorithmic Problem Solving and it is funded by the Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation. Its main goal is to develop educational material supporting the use of a calculational approach to algorithmic problem solving. The focus of the project will be on the dynamics of problem solving - the processes of mathematical modelling and effective calculation in the formulation of concise and precise algorithmic methods.
