I am an Associate Professor at the Dep. of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Coimbra, Portugal, and coordinator of the Center for Industrial Ecology (http://www2.dem.uc.pt/CenterIndustrialEcology/), and a member of the coordination board of the Energy for Sustainability initiative (www.uc.pt/efs). I teach courses on Industrial Ecology, Energy and Environmental Management, and Circular Economy. My research focuses on developing and implementing Life-Cycle based approaches to enhance the sustainability of products and systems. I have studied and coordinated projects on several products, industrial and energy systems, including agro-industry, electricity, renewable energy, and waste management. I am co-editor-in-chief of the new Journal of Cleaner Environmental Systems, from Elsevier.
