I am graduated in Physics/Applied Mathematics in 1993 and with a master degree in Mechanical Engineeringat in 1996, at the U Porto. The PhD was in Mechanical Engineering, in the sub-area of Biomechanics, in 2006, and also with a Postgraduate course in Physical Properties of Materials, in 2003, at the U Aveiro. I have been doing research for about 15 years, in several research centers, with more than 70 publications. I have been an universitary professor for about 20 years and nowadays, I am Associate Professor at Ispgaya.
My main topics of interest are: biomechanics; biosensors; fiber optic sensors, applied photonics; numerical simulation; experimental technics for measuring mechanical and physical properties; characterization of biomaterials; bone remodelling process.
