After receiving my degree in Physics (BSc+MSc) from Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal, I joined the Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering Institute (IBEB), Faculty of Sciences of Lisbon, where I spent one year studying Biophysics. In 2006 I received my PhD from the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation (ANC), University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom. I then returned to Portugal and joined the Neurobiology Division at the Institute for Molecular and Cellular Biology (IBMC) as a postdoc for a period of two years. In 2008 I received a position of Assistant Researcher and Lecturer in Biomathematics at the Centre for Mathematics of University of Porto (CMUP).
Recently (2014) I joined the National Institute of Biomedical Engineering (INEB) as a Research Fellow. I am also a Professor Afiliado of the Faculty of Medicine of University of Porto (FMUP) and an Associated Member of CMUP.
My research interests are in:Computational Neuroscience; Neuroinformatics; Neural Computation; Neural Engineering; Mathematical/Computational Models in Biology and Medicine.
