My name is João M. Justo Pereira, I'm 27 years old, natural from Lisbon, Portugal.

I am a MSc finalist student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at IST - Instituto Superior Técnico / Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal.

I also hold a certification in Decision Making, Design and Strategy under Uncertainty from MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, United States of America.

I am currently working on the design of Ultra Low Power Capacitorless LDO Voltage Regulators, Power Management section, as my MSc Thesis. This was a full year project and was designed with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) technology, 0.65 nm process.

In the same field, I also had to do research and design a full Band-Gap IP module in order to incorporate it in a DC-DC converter. This project eventually lead me to choose my current MSc Thesis and to deepen my interests in this field. This IP module was designed with Austria Micro Systems (AMS) technology, 0.35 μm process, also a full year project. This project was developed as a final project of Microelectronics and Analog Integrated Systems courses.

My research interests include analog and mixed signal design engineering as well as CMOS sub-threshold operation.

On a more personal note:

Regarding hobbies and leisure activities, my interests usually revolve around DIY/Arduino/Raspberry Pi projects, sketching/painting, making short films (won a second place in the American FYI competition, foreign short films) and listening to music. I also love to read a good book. I tend to read, mostly electronic and computer science related textbooks, a couple of philosophic books to figure out how the "machine" works and finally some science-fiction novels. Obviously I also love to go out with friends, to go to the cinema, to go on snowboard trips and to ride BMX.

More information will be added to this page regarding the past projects I was on.
