After my graduation in Aquatic Sciences (1982) and MSc in Fisheries assessment & management at University of Porto (1988), I obtained my PhD in Physical Oceanography at University of Lisbon (1998). Within my doctorate work I participated in several oceanographic campaigns , and developed OCEANUS, an oceanographic digital atlas & data processing software, which received a couple of awards. Simultaneous, I pursued an academic career at University of Porto where I was responsible for the Physical Oceanography, GIS and Fisheries Stock Assessment courses at both BSc and MSc level.

I also worked in web design privately and I was responsible for image & communication at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Marine and Environmental Research of University of Porto.
