I completed my PhD in Marine, Earth and Environmental Sciences in 2014/11/03 by Universidade do Algarve, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, and graduated in Biology & Geology (for teaching) in 2008/06/13 by Universidade do Algarve. I'm a contracted researcher in Universidade do Algarve, Centro Interdisciplinar de Arqueologia e Evolução do Comportamento Humano. I published 12 articles in journals, 7 sections of books, organized 4 events and participated in 27. I co-supervised 2 PhD theses, supervised 1 work of course completion of LSc/BSc and co-supervised 1. I received 3 awards and/or honors. I participate and/or participated as Principal investigator in 1 project, Researcher in 10 projects, Other in 4 projects, PhD Student Fellow in 2 projects and Research Fellow in 1 project. I work in the area of Natural sciences with an emphasis on Earth and Environmental Sciences, particularly on Climatic Research. In my professional activities, I interacted with 218 collaborators in the co-authorship of scientific papers. In my Ciência Vitae curriculum, the most frequent terms in the context of scientific, technological and artistic-cultural output are: Diatoms; Southern Iberia coast; Azores Islands; Mozambique; Chrysophyte cysts; Palaeoenvironmental reconstructions; Archaeology; GIS mapping; Multivariate statistical analysis; Sedimentology; Geochemistry; Human evolution; Palaeoenvironmental reconstruction; and Climate.

At there school they will make micro fossils identification and understand hoe fossil species change along time and under different environmental pressures. The work in School is supervised by the Biology and Geology teacher in collaboration with the InMoz project research team. Students will present a final work (poster or report).
