Academic degrees                     

  • PhD degree in Hydrogeology at the University of London, United Kingdom. 2005
  • MSc degree in Hydrogeology and Groundwater Resources, University College London. 1996
  • Licenciatura (Geologia), University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 1991.
Main research areas
  • Natural hydrogen occurrence, having conducted the national assessment made Morocco and developed a remote sensing methodology to identify potential hydrogen seeps at surface. Currently coordinating project HyAfrica:  Towards a next-generation renewable energy source –   a natural hydrogen solution for power supply in Africa

in which natural hydrogen potential is assessed in four African countries: Mozambique, Morocco, South Africa and Togo. Funded by the LEAP-RE programme.

  • CO2 storage for climate mitigation purposes. Coordinated and /or participated in the assessments of CO2 storage capacity in Portugal and in the design of the CO2 transport network in the Iberian Peninsula, conducted in the scope of several projects;
  • Energy storage in geological formations, including hydrogen storage;
  • Geothermal Resource Assessment, having coordinated the assessments in the Oriental Region of Morocco and the ongoing assessment for the Southern provinces.
