He coordinated 2 consulting projects for the Port of Figueira da Foz Administration conducted between 2014 and 2017, and participated as a team member in 6 consulting project. He published 42 articles in journals of international circulation indexed in the WoS. The most relevant articles are on the subject of the sediment transport and the underlying hydrodynamic processes. He is co-editor of two books, has published more than 100 articles in national and international conference proceedings and 33 technical and scientific reports. He peer-reviewed articles for WoS 5 journals. He was invited editor of the Journal of Integrated Coastal Zone Management in 2015 and makes part of the editoral board of the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering (coastal engineering section). He has participated in the organizing committee of 5 national conferences on morphodynamics and coastal zones between 2011 and 2019 and two "Technical Course on Dredging" in 2009 and 2013, participated in the Technical Abstract Review Committee of the Coastal Dynamics Conference held in 2013 and in the Scientific Committee of the X International Coastal Symposium ICS09. He participated in the evaluation panel of The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), 2013, in the FCT PhD proposals (Environmental Engineering) in 2018 and in the papel of evaluation of FCT projects in 2020 (Environmental Engineering).
