Academic governance and teaching
I have belonged to the commission of several study cycles and responsible for courses within the scope of marine sciences and geomorphology.
Summary of the curriculum vitae
My scientific activity has been developed at the Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIMA)- University of Algarve. The main subjects of my scientific interest are:
(i) Marine and Coastal morphodynamics;
(ii) Coastal evolution over the Quaternary geological period forced by changes in the mean sea level, with particular emphasis on rocky shores and estuaries, through the use of several proxies.
Since 2001, I was the Responsible Researcher for six research projects on coastal morphodynamic.
I’ve published so far 34 papers in international journals, 15 book chapters and 46 papers in international conference proceedings these ones concerning coastal morphodynamic topics. Additionally, I have contributed to the knowledge of the geology of Portugal and the Algarve Basin in particular, and dissemination of the Portuguese geological heritage, collaborating with colleagues from all the Portuguese universities.
Currently, my main challenge is the calibration of morphodynamic and hydrodynamic numeric models using field data in order to perform both palaeo coastline reconstructions and future evolution.
