Concluded the PhD thesis in 2015 in Environmental Engineering, developing a methodological framework for space-time air quality prediction in industrial areas based on geostatistical methodologies. Master degree in Georresources concluded in 2006, at Instituto Superior Técnico (Technical University of Lisbon). Graduated in Geophysical Sciences (Meteorology/Oceanography) concluded in 2004 at Faculdade de Ciências - Universidade de Lisboa. Main scientific research areas are applied meteorology and climatology; and geostatistical modeling methodologies for characterizing environmental phenomena – namely fire risk, precipitation extremes, drought periods and air quality; particularly for uncertainty assessment and risk analysis. Currently main research interests are the development of geostatistical methods to integrate data with different volume supports, to develop an air quality downscaling model through stochastic simulation. Researcher at CERENA since January 2007.
