For the past twenty years, I have been employed in academia in five different countries, doing research in astronomy and astrophysics, and teaching mathematics, physics and astronomy.
Since 2022, I am a member of the Institute of Astrophysics in Portugal, and work with the ESA Space Solutions team at Instituto Pedro Nunes in Coimbra. I am part of the ESA Comet Interceptor science working group.

Pedro, I’m so proud of your accomplishments. I remember how happy you were one time when you scored a 19 in an undergrad course in Lisbon. I also remember you sleeping in my garage one night! I’ll follow your career because I’m still expecting a Nobel Prize…..
