Currently he is the director of the architecture master degree, coordinator of the group spacer_Lab2pt, member of the scientific council and of the pedagogical council of the EAUM. Holding a degree in Architecture (2002) and a Master degree in Methodologies of Intervention on the Architectural Heritage (2006), both granted by the Architecture Faculty of the University of Porto (FAUP), he concluded his PhD, at EAUM (2015), with the research entitled “Imaginary Architecture: Real and illusory space in Portuguese baroque” which looked into architecture and perspective treatises searching for intersections between projective science and architectural design.
From 2001 to 2008 collaborated in the architectural studio of António Madureira, participating in projects developed in partnership among António Madureira and Álvaro Siza. Simultaneously, developed his own projects and in 2005 collaborated with the publishing house DAFNE as coeditor.
