In July of 2018, I submitted my application to a public selection for a position as Adjunct Professor at Federal University of Ceará, and I got the job. (see more)
In 2014 I joined the It team to work in part of my PhD Thesis under the supervision of Dr. Paulo Antunes. My thesis was focused in the development of optical sensors for application in heritage constructions for structural monitoring. During this time, I worked with FBG and application on civil engineering structures in Brazil and Portugal. I concluded my PhD in 2017, and then decided to come back to my country: Brazil. In 2017, I became the Head of the Laboratory of Civil Engineering of the Nuclei of Industrial Technology of Ceará State (NUTEC) and worked with materials characterization. Work in the NUTEC was special to me because there we worked together with several industries from Ceará. In July of 2018, I submitted my application to a public selection for a position as Adjunct Professor at Federal University of Ceará, and I got the job. Since then, I am a Adjunct Professor of the Department of Civil Engineering of the Federal University of Ceará. Currently, I am the Head of the Laboratory of Rehabilitation and Buildings Durability (LAREB/UFC) and we have worked with the development of optical sensors for building monitoring, non-destructive assessment and building pathologies. In 2019, I wrote a book entitled “Engenharia do Patrimônio”, and this is the first book on Structural Health Monitoring published in Brazil on this subject. Even with Fortaleza being at a distance of 5790 Km from Aveiro, we are still working in close collaboration with the IT team, through ongoing research, students’ advisements or technical missions.
