Research Summary


Currently, I mostly work on Time-Frequency Analysis and Harmonic Analysis in Phase Space  (i.e. Applied Harmonic Analysis) with special emphasize to Operator Theory, Quantum Physics and Special Functions.

My research interests also include Wavelet Analysis, Clifford Analysis, Umbral Calculus and the development of numerical schemes for PDE’s (e.g. Navier-StokesSchroedinger equations and alike).

You can see my research contributions in the list of publications.


I was born in September 26, 1982 in Lisbon (Portugal).

I grew up between Lisbon and Alfeizerão (a small village in the district of Alcobaça close to S. Martinho do Porto ) .

Before I went to University of Aveiro on the academic year of 2000-2001, I’ve studied in Escola Secundária Dª Inês de Castro, Alcobaça.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Department of Mathematics, University of Aveiro in March 26, 2009.

During the academic year of 2009-2010, I held a position as Invited Adjunct Professor in Escola Superior de Educação e Ciências Sociais, Instituto Politécnico de Leiria.

I have been in the faculty of the Department of Mathematics of the University of Coimbra since August 2010 as a Post-Doc researcher (funded by FCT).
