Professor Bernardo Rodrigues

Bernado Rodrigues

My research interests are in the theory of finite groups, combinatorial design theory, and the links of these to algebraic coding theory and algebraic graph theory, permutation decoding, and modular representation theory.

I also work the dynamics of epidemiological disease transmission, using networks defined by graphs. With more than 15 years of working experience in tertiary education, I lectured courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
