I was born in 1967. I was graduated from Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa in Industrial Chemical Engineering in 1995, received my M.Sc. degree in Technological Organic Chemistry from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia/Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2001 and my Ph.D. in Chemistry from Instituto Superior Técnico/Technical University of Lisbon in 2010. My research in recent years is centered mainly in the field of nanomaterials: design, synthesis and properties
evaluation of well-defined calixarene-based conjugated polymers as new materials for electrochemical switches, electronic and optoelectronic devices and chemical sensors for detection of explosive materials.
