My research background is in the area of Universal Algebra, and may be broadly described as studying algebraic structures to understand their complexity as well as their interaction with various non-algebraic subjects.

Currently, I am the project coordinator for “Dualizability of Algebras from Congruence-Permutable Varieties” funded by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. PCOFUND-GA-2009-246542 and from the Foundation for Science and Technology of Portugal.

In addition, I am also participating in research projects in other areas, such as Group and Semigroup Theory. 

FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY: My project has been able to secure funding for a 16-month fellowship position. For details, please see http://www.fc.ul.pt/concursos?perfil=3?refer=4, and select opening nr. 414.
