High Performance Computing in Molecular Modelling
I did my first degree in chemistry at the University of Porto and a Ph.D. in muon research at the University of Glasgow. Subsequently I did a post-doc at the University of Oxford, UK.
In 2019 I got the Medinabeitia-Lourenço Prize awarded by the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ). In 2014, I was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the Stockholm University, Sweden, given as a recognition of the work in the fields of Enzymatic Catalysis and Molecular Docking. In 1974, the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Portugal, gave me a prize for best student. I have been a Vice-Rector for R&D and have performed extensive evaluation research work for several research entities.
