Personal profile


He has being a Lecturer in Human Resources and Organisational Behaviour and also in Organisational Psychology in universities in Portugal and England. He teaches or taught subjects like Human Resources Management, Leadership, Organisational Development, Organisational Psychology, Organisational Behaviour, Working in Teams, among others. He has also been the supervisor of several post grad students. He founded and has been the Executive Advisor (Executive Director) of tbs – Tomar Business School, a structure integrated on the Polytechnic Institute of Tomar (Portugal) that offers post grad and CPD programmes for executives and managers from different organisations and sectors.


Prior to his academic career, he worked as an environmental psychology consultant and as Head of a Training Business Unit in a Portuguese consultancy firm. As an environmental psychology consultant, he developed several socio-economic and social impact studies associated with the construction of new motorways, railway, hospitals, etc. As a Head of Training Business Unit, he developed several training programmes for external clients and had the chance of leading a team of instructors. 




My research focuses on the impact of social networks on the emergence of shared cognitions in groups and teams. I use a psycho-structural approach to the study of groups and teams which combine the use of both social network analysis and psychological variables to understand the emergence and development of shared cognitions. I’m also interested in the development of experimental studies using social sensing wearables. These wearables allow moving away from social network analysis based on self-reported measures by measuring real interactions between individuals.

I believe that the study of how people interact with each other and its relationship with shared cognitions can be applicable to multiple contexts such as organisations, education, social, among others.
