Biographic Notes
Researcher offering versatile observational skills in the field of galaxy evolution. Strong expertise in spectral analysis of optical data, and millimetre radio observations with different telescopes. At present, as a manager of the Portuguese ALMA Centre of Expertise, responsible for ALMA data analysis and validation, and the growth of a radio community in Portugal.
High competence to work with multi-wavelengths data, both spectroscopic and photometric, spanning the Ultra Violet-Far Infrared range. Proficiency in the study of environmental effects on galaxy evolution, statistical analysis of galaxies number counts, and spectral energy distribution analysis. Experiences as an examiner for the University, tutor for fellows and Erasmus students, and teaching.
More than 30 articles, 4 as a first author, with an H-index of 15. All the papers have been conceived within international collaborations, capitalizing the available state-of-art instruments. As a member of the Herschel Virgo Cluster Survey and Herschel Fornax Cluster Survey teams contributed to the assembly of an extensive database for the community. Different products, such as catalogues, templates, statistical analysis, are now available online through the Vizier database repository, handled by the CDS.
Member of the ESO Observing Programmes Committee (OPC) for the two-year period 2019-2020. Referee for Astronomy & Astrophysics and the Astrophysical Journal (impact factor of 5.01 and 5.53, respectively) since 2014. At a national level, organizer of the ’Encontro Nacional de Astronomia e Astrofisica’ (ENAA) of 2017 in Lisbon, and member of the Local Organizer Committee of the conference ’Back at the edge of the Universe’, in Sintra on 2013. At an international level, responsible for the ALMA data processing workshop, held in Lisbon in 2017 and funded by the European agency Radionet, and the European meeting of the ALMA network in Caparica on 2016, funded by the European Southern Observatory.
More than 20 presentations in the last 5 years, 1 as invited speakers, 5 posters in national and international conferences. Various research seminars at the Science faculty of Lisbon University, and the ’Instituto Superior Tecnico’. As a member of different consortia and working groups participated in more than 20 workshops and received visits from international institution Representatives.
