My academic background, namely a MSc. in Nature Conservation and Management and an Advanced Diploma in GIS, has instilled me the qualities required to meet the needs of my personal interests: they have been the way that allows me to contribute for a balanced and sustainable development, in a world that more than ever is searching for security, comfort and efficiency.


My MSc. has provided a good foundation in understanding the environmental issues in the different areas of life. The Diploma responds to today ´s need for enhanced computer literacy in the management and analysis of digital spatial data. So, in practice, I´ve been aplying this set of knowledge and technologies to collect, store, process (geoprocessing) and modelling geographic information of territorial, biological, ecological and socio-economical nature.


At the end, I´ve worked on territorial and environmental projects, involving research and decision-making, and currently I´m integrating the research team at the 'Rui Nabeiro' Biodiversity Chair in University of Évora.
