Since 1998, I have been developing research work in the fields of operational research and economy-energy modelling at INESC, a R&D Institute associated with University of Coimbra. The research work has been focused on the development of mathematical models for decision support in the study of economy-energy-environment-interactions. My research interests have also included uncertainty handling through interval programming techniques in this kind of models. The results of this work have been the subject of several research projects and grants and have appeared as communications in international conferences (e.g. IAEE, SDEWES, WSEAS), publications in conference proceedings with refereeing, publications in book chapters (Kluwer International Series and Nova Publishers) and scientific journals with ISI impact factors (such as the European Journal of Operational Research, Energy, Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Journal of Systems Analysis Modelling Simulation and Journal of the Spanish Statistical and Operations Research Society).
Nowadays, I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Accounting and Administration of the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra and responsible for the following courses in the framework of the B.Sc. degrees of Management, Accounting and Public Accounting: Macroeconomics, Microeconomics Analysis, Portuguese Economy, Public Economics. Previously, I was also an Assistant Professor at Miguel Torga Higher Education Institute and responsible for the following courses: Model Building in Management and Operations Management.
