Currently working at University of Sharjah (Research Institute of Sciences and Technology), in UAE, as a research assistant. I am collaborating in various projects such as detection and prediction of pathologies in structures and buildings, air pollution, evaluation of building sustainability.

Alongside I am writing a Thesis under the supervision of Prof. Sousa Oliveira and Luis Calado, where my research work is focused on the development of a computational model to simulate the behavior of dynamic actions (wind and earthquakes) of tower cranes used in construction industry.

As a basic training I am a Civil Engineer (major), specialized in Structural Engineering (minor). As a result of all the parallel projects in recent years, and the skills and experience gained through them, I have the right tools to solve any problem or quickly search for a solution.
