Academic Degrees:

  • Master in Health and Fitness, Faculty of Human Kinetics, University of Lisbon
  • Degree in Physical Education, Faculty of Human Kinetics, University of Lisbon

Current Position:

  • PhD student at Faculty of Human Kinetics, University of Lisbon
  • Invited Assistant at Sport Sciences School of Rio Maior, Polytechnic Institute of Santarém

Thesis title:

Design and implementation of a program of physical exercise focused on postural stability for the elderly and evaluation of its impact in gait pattern, functional fitness and falls prevention.

Lecturing activities:

  • Functional screening and exercise prescription in special populations (postural and functional imbalances)
  • Group and individual physical fitness methodology

Research Interests:

Research focused on the elderly population and the risk of falling within the following aspects:

  • Design and implementation of exercise program centered on fall risk factors – posture, balance, lower lim strength and power and gait pattern
  • Pedography assessment to characterize of the magnitude and distribution of plantar pressure associated with gait in elderly
  •  Characterization of physical activity level, perceived health, functional status and it’s relationship to the occurrence of falls in this population
