I have a degree in Biology and a M.Sc. in Bioinformatics. I have developed research in the areas of evolution, bioinformatics, climate modelling and participated in several national and international research and consultancy projects on the analysis and development of regional climate change scenarios. I work as Researcher at FFCUL since 2010, participating in a range of national and international projects on climate change adaptation for the biodiversity and water sectors: BioAdapt (the Portuguese National Climate Change Adaptation Strategy for the sector of Biodiversity); CIRCLE-2 ERA-Net; VA-4D (Visual Analysis of 4-Dimensional fields, using demonstration scenarios for vulnerability and risk assessments) and ADAPTACLIMA (Adapting EPAL, the largest Portuguese water supply utility, to climate change scenarios). I have also been the FFCUL coordinator of several projects: ADMICCO (Climate change adaptation and mitigation of coastal areas in South American); development of climate change scenarios for the Angola’s Water Program; and am also the FFCUL’s lead element of the Climate-KIC’s Regional Innovation Scheme in Portugal. Currently, I am the coordinator of the Horizon 2020 project PLACARD (Platform for Climate Adaptation and Risk Reduction).
