As a geometer and researcher in CEAU (Faculty of Architecture, University of Porto) Vera Viana has directed her interests and practice towards the enhancement of geometry education with advanced digital tools, focusing on polyhedral theory, structural geometry, the history of polyhedra, the relationships between architecture and mathematics and the transformative potential of digital culture in higher education. Viana authored a Ph.D. Thesis, book chapters, papers, lectures, courses, and a website on these subjects. Director of Aproged (the Portuguese Geometry and Drawing Teachers¿ Association) since 2009. Co-Chair and Organizing Committee member of international conferences aimed at disseminating scientific knowledge and synergies between scholars, researchers, and experimentalists within multidisciplinary frameworks. Editor of conferences-related books published by Springer Nature (2020 and 2022 (upcoming)) and Aproged (2009-2021). Editorial Board member of the Nexus Network Journal. Descriptive Geometry Teacher (1993-2008) and author of Descriptive Geometry schoolbooks.
