About me

Ricardo Chaves

Ricardo Chaves is an Associate professor at the Computer Science Department at the University of Lisbon/IST and a researcher at the Signal Processing Group (SiPS) of INESC-ID working on hardware for security on embedded and user oriented systems. He received his Ph.D. degree, in 2007, in electrical and computer engineering from TUDelft and from the University of Lisbon in a joint PhD program between the two universities. He's PhD research work was focused on the design of a Secure Computing Module (SCM) on reconfigurable systems.

His research interests are focused on cryptography systems, reconfigurable hardware architectures, and on embedded and user oriented systems. He is an active member of HiPEAC and in the Management Committee of the CRYPTARCUS (of which he is the vice-leader of WG3). He was also a member of the EU COST Actions TRUDEVICE. He is also involved in several ongoing project European projects, such as EMC2 (focused on critical computational systems) and Rethink (the future of peer-to-peer internet). As also participated in several other European and National project (FARNuSyC, Threads, Mobipag, HELIX, Sideworks, SCryBAM, CORTIVIS, Safira). He is also an IEEE senior member. He recently organized the TRUDEVICE 2014 training school and the CRYPACUS 2018 training school.

Research and professional interests:
  • Computer Architecture on Reconfigurable Devices
  • Implementation of Security Primitives
  • Embedded Systems and Hardware Development
  • Residual Numbering Systems
