I graduated (4 year degree: 1995) in Marine Biology and Fisheries) at University of Algarve. After I graduate I was invited to work as researcher at Portuguese Institute of Fisheries research (IPMA-IPIMAR) where I have worked was benthic ecologist and after in studies related to fishing ecology/biology, small scalle fishing etc. I post-graduate in Geographical Information Systems (2003) at "Universidade Nova de Lisboa", in Lisbon. I did the master in marine Ecology (2004) in University of Coimbra and award PhD in Marine sciences and Populations Dynamic in 2009 (university of Algarve). After the PhD I was invited to work in UNESCO-International Center of ECOHYDROLOGY as scientific coordinator. This position as allow me to enrich my perception about Climate Change and fisheries. In 2010 I was awarded a 1st post-doc (CCMAR-UALG & Institute of Marine Research, Norway) and in 2016 a 2nd postdoc (CCMAR & University of Vancouver) both on the role of Climate change in fisheries impact. In 2017 award a research position at University of Algarve where I was invited to lecture several disciplines in Marine Biology and Ecology. Given my CV path I become skillful on geospatial-databases, data mining, geo-statistical tools, time-series analysis, ecological modelling, stock assessment. Currently my research is focus on the assessment of climate change in fisheries. I aimed to evaluate the ecological and socio-economic vulnerability of climate change in marine systems/communities and socio-economic systems. I have I participated in 34 projects (scientific, technical), organized courses (4), participated in 35 advanced scientific courses, posters (34) and oral presentations (29) in international/national conferences. I am currently the PI of 4 ongoing projects. In 2017 I was invite to become leader group of ECOREACH at CCMAR (https://www.ccmar.ualg.pt/en/list/grid_groupleaders). I published 67 papers in ISIS journals (H=17), 4 as single authors, edit special issue/s) in several journals and I have produced several scientific reports(23). I have been enrolled in multi consultancy works also. During my career I have (ongoing) supervise Undergraduate students (14), master (16); phd(6) and postdocs (4). I am a reviewer of several journals (21). I have contributed to divulgate my/institutional research at different media levels, TV, radio, magazines etc.
