Short Bio

After got my PhD in Chemistry in 2009 at University of Aveiro (UA), I was a postdoctoral researcher at CESAM-UA (6 years), and then at CICECO-UA and CIIMAR-University of Porto (3 years). During my post-doctoral activities, I was also voluntary professor at UA, an invited assistant at College of Agriculture of Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra and I was abroad for 4 short stays at European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN-ISOLDE), where I performed experimental work. Since December 2018, I am an initial level researcher at CICECO.

I am author of 83 publications: 2 theses, 1 book chapter, 48 peer-review papers, 15 proceeding papers , 16 scientific reports and 1 article in a daily newspaper. My peer-review papers were published mainly in highly ranked journals (81% of papers are in 1st citescore quartile and 55% in top 10 percent: source Scopus), reflecting the quality of the research produced and peer acknowledgement. I am author of 3 highly cited papers and
my citation output is:
• Scopus: >1300 citations; h-index 21; top 3 of most cited papers (229, 99 and 88 citations)
• Google scholar: >1500 citations; h-index 23; top 3 of most cited papers (289, 124 and 111 citations)
I have been disclosing my research in conferences, mostly international, presenting 84 communications, 33 as oral (4 invited, 1 keynote). I supervise(ed) 1 PhD, 13 MSc (1 Erasmus), 7 undergraduate students and 3 research fellows.

In 2007, I was awarded with a monetary prize (US $3300) by the International Atomic Energy Agency. I have been participating in 18 research projects funded by public institutions (FCT), or by private corporations such as Acuinova or Administração do Porto de Aveiro (1 as principal investigator, 1 as UA coordinator and 1 international (ISOLDE program)), with a total funding superior to 2million euros. The wide project participation reflects my strong dynamism in integrating multi-disciplinary teams and pursuing financial support for research.

I have been a regular referee for SCI journals in the areas of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Materials and Environmental Sciences, member and examiner of juries and chairman of international conference.

During my career, I have established a vital cooperation network with researchers from national and international institutions (CESAM-UA; CICECO-UA; CIIMAR-UP; University of Leon; University of Utrech, CERN-ISOLDE) and industry (Corticeira Amorim, JA Borges Lda, ACUINOVA).
