Current Research & Key Publications

My academic background is on Mathematics, holding three degrees by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto: BSc in Mathematics – Educational branch, MSc in Mathematics – Foundations and Applications, and PhD in Applied Mathematics.


My interest focuses on mathematical applications to biology and on the development and application of software for mathematical modeling, simulation and data analysis.


In the past few years
 I developed mathematical models and software in the fields of neurosciences, population genetics and genomics.
