Outreach Activities

Advances in research are only possible if researchers make an effort on disseminating their work, not only to their collegues, but also to the public in general. Having this premise in mind, I have tried to get involved in activities with schools, elaborating geological guides, or disseminating the work I have been doing to the public.

Science can be also transformed into ART as demonstrated at MARCO.

I was involved and supervising small research projects developed by high school students during the summer of 2013 and 2011 in the frame of Ciência Viva Short Placements in Laboratories, a programme that offers young people the opportunity to get involved in research teams in science and technology institutions, during their Summer holidays.

I had the opportunity of visiting several schools from the North to the South of Portugal, explaining the important role that beaches and dunes play on protecting our coasts in 2009 in the frame of activities organized by CIENCIA VIVA.

It is also very important that if we find an opportunity to pass the lessons learnt from exploring nature we just have to do it!

The sea level curve that we have elaborated was disseminated to different National journals:
