I have a Ph.D in Physics and I am an Assistant Professor in the Physics Department of the University of Coimbra, where I am the Coordinator of the Biomedical Engineering Master Program. My scientific background is in electronic and optical instrumentation. I started my scientific career in the field of Nuclear Electronics and worked in Real-Time Data Acquisition and Timing Systems for space (my graduate thesis was done in contract with ESA – European Space Agency) and nuclear applications (electronics for nuclear radiation detectors; timing and control systems for nuclear fusion experiments). I shifted my research to Biomedical Instrumentation, focusing mainly in ocular fluorescence. I have done work in lens and retinal fluorescence and in corneal confocal microscopy. Currently, I work mainly on ocular functional imaging, particularly on metabolic imaging of the cornea and non-linear ocular imaging. I have also interests in laser safety, laser dosimetry and low-level laser therapy.
I am also a co-founder of a successful award-winning global company specialized in Telemetry and M2M (Machine to Machine) Communications.
