Joćo was a full-time PhD student in information retrieval at the
Department of Computing, Imperial College London, in the Multimedia and
Information Systems Group, supervised by Prof Stefan Rueger.
His PhD thesis http://people.kmi.open.ac.uk/stefan/www-pub/j.magalhaes-phd.pdf Statistical models for semantic-multimedia information retrieval, published in 2008, has improved multimedia search by exploring semantic-multimedia analysis through two complementary search paradigms: (1) search-by-keyword and (2) search-by-semantic-example. After his PhD studies Joćo joined Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL), Portugal, as Adjunct Professor.
