Daniel Silvestre received his B.Sc. in Computer Networks in 2008 from the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon, Portugal, and an M.Sc. in Advanced Computing in 2009 from the Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom. In 2017, he got his Ph.D. (with the highest honors) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the former university, and was a visiting scholar at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Currently, Dr. Silvestre is an Assistant Professor at Lusófona University and is with the Institute for Systems and Robotics, at the Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon (PT). His research interests span the fields of fault detection and isolation, distributed systems, network control systems, computer networks, set-valued estimation and control methods, and randomized algorithms.
