University of Minho
(2005) Licenciatura degree (5 years) in Mathematics - University of Aveiro (Portugal)
(2007) Master degree in Applied Mathematics - University of Porto (Portugal)
(2012) Ph.D. in Science and Polymer Engineering - University of Minho (Portugal) The thesis is about the numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes Equations by the Finite Volume Method, It was recognized by the Portuguese Society for theoretical, applied and computational mechanics with an Honorable Mention.
(2019) Ph.D. in Mathematics - University of Chester (UK). The thesis is about the numerical solution of fractional differential equations and their application to physics and engineering (the VIVA defense was in 2018).
Research interests: (numerical analysis) new models and numerical methods for integro-differential equations; (mathematical modelling) complex viscoelastic flows and anomalous diffusion; (machine learning).
