My research interests focus on permafrost and climate change in the Antarctic Peninsula region. The main topics of on-going activities are the geomorphodynamics of periglacial environments, permafrost temperature monitoring and modelling, climate monitoring and geomorphological mapping. I have several monitoring activities in Livingston and Deception Islands (Antarctic) in the framework on AntEEC Research Group. I am currently also involved on a project on Mars-Earth analogues where we are conducting multiscale field and remote sensing mapping of patterned ground (mainly tundra polygons) in Svalbard. Another of my research interests is glacial geomorphology and I am currently working on glacial chronology of the Serra da Estrela, Central Portugal. I am coordinating the Research Group on Antarctic Environments and Climate Change at the Centre for Geographical Studies - University of Lisbon

    Short presentations at conferences/workshops with a question/answer period.

  • Career Development Workshop Sessions
    Helping in the coordination and facilitation of sessions at major conferences

  • One-on-One Mentoring
    Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
    alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
    management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.

  • In-person meetings/conferences/seminars
  • Email Exchange
  • European Geosciences Union
  • SCAR Open Science Conferences
