Scientific activities

2019 - present - Cephs and chefs - The project aims to develop new markets and products based on cephalopods (squid, octopus, cuttlefish), increasing the profitability of the value chain, and helping to make fishers more competitive in the Atlantic Area. Project developed at University of Aveiro

2019- present - Research Fellow - NetTag “Tagging fishing gears and enhancing on board best-practices to promote waste free fisheries”, NetTag project aims to reduce and prevent marine litter derived from fisheries by working directly with fishers through an integrative preventive approach: i) reducing lost gear by using new technologies (acoustic system), which will help fishers to localize and recover their lost gears; and ii) promoting better practices on-board regarding management of fishing waste, through awareness actions organized by fishers associations for fishers. Project developed at University of Aveiro


2017-2019 - Research Fellow - Pescadata - RECREATIONAL FISHERIES DATA COLLECTION IN PORTUGAL MAINLAND. Project developed at CIIMAR - Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research, University of Algarve
