I graduated in Environment Engineering in 2001 and have a Master in Environmental Systems Management from the Faculty of Science and Technology of the New University of Lisbon. I started my scientific research path in 2001 in the area of risk assessment and modeling of environmental systems applied to human health, while developing teaching activities in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems.
My scientific research career highlight the passage by the Earth Physics department of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Washington, which in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) participated in product development and remote sensing methods applied to human health.
My main motivations are to incorporate new technologies and methods in impacts and adaptation studies on climate change, to help bridging the gap the science and society.
