Finished MSc degree at IST in 2009 and immediately after (2010) joined Cerena research center. There conducted research and development in several fields of mathematics applied to geosciences and released open-source software such as Fillworks, ECMWF parser and GEOMS2. In 2014 became Assistant Lecturer for two MSc level courses at IST and by 2016 joined Geovariances as Software Engineer. Independently it has developed several free Educational Apps for Android and frequently releases online publications and software.

Software

I’ve produced desktop software in several scientific fields, both commercial and open-source. Further I’ve developed several educational apps for Android (free models in mobile equipments).

Work Experience

I’ve worked in a reserach center (in geosciences), as university assistant lecturer and as a software engineer in a company which develops software for scientific purposes. I’ve also, at some point, started my own endeavour (with a friend) in building a company to produce digital products for education.

Software Engineer (Geovariances, France)

Worked in Geovariances, 2016-2019, within a R&D team to develop a new time to depth conversion software within a consortium named UncerTZ. The software has been successfully completed and set to be released early 2019 (Isatis.neo - Petroleum edition). This package will appear inside Isatis.neo, geostatics modeling software, to be released at the same time.

Besides the completion of the main target some other of my achievements in Geovariances include:

Co-Founder (anteia)

In 2014 and 2015 me a friend started a project company named “anteia” with the pursuit of building software for scientific and educational purposes. A bit more than year on the going we had to halt the project due to lack of funding. However, in the meanwhile several different educational products and demos were released and presented to potential clients.

Assistant Lecturer (IST)

My employer was IST, an engineering University in Lisbon. This happened in the years of 2014 and 2015.

To have an idea of the program of these courses you can check the powerpoint presentation I used in classes. It’s available for donwload in Research Gate.

Graphic Design

I’ve used mostly vector graphics for a number of tasks related to branding, marketing, aesthetics, user experience, and art. You can check my Behance profile for a better experience in analyzing graphical material (only some of the projects are present in Behance).

Branding and Logos

Logos From left to right the logos of GEOMS2 (2013), anteia (2015), UncerTZ consortium (2016), Kartotrak (2018; “flat” style modification of a logo not originally designed by me), Isatis.neo (2018; release 2019). The order is cronological. All of the projects were made with vectorial graphics. My software of choice to do so is Inkscape.

Icons

I’ve made a number of icons in the past for multiple projects. These are general purpose examples:

Icons

And some other examples made in isometric style:

Icons

More recently I’ve prepared the icon set for the upcomming software Isatis.neo. This required the creation of images that described abstract operations. For this effect I’ve conceptualized a style which took hints from technical drawing and started making experiments with shades of yellow and orange as representative color. Here are some of the prototypes (some were eventually accepted for the final product):

Marketing

You can see a better presentation of this project in my Behance profile.

Although not an area for which I have a lot of experience I did design and develop a number of graphical products marketing related.

This flyer was developed as a two sided foldable, one side being of scientific nature (a poster in an international conference), the other corporate.

Scientific Illustration

You can see a better presentation of these projects in my Behance profile.

I’ve published a number of works in international conferences and a few educational projects.

The following is a static image of the poster A Case Study Of A New Time-Depth Conversion Workflow Designed For Optimizing Recovery presented at ECMOR XVI - 16th European Conference on the Mathematics of Oil Recovery.

Game Art and Animation

These screenshots are from a demo presented to a book publisher in Lisbon that specialized manuals for the Portuguese language:

These screenshots are from a demo made to be presented to an university hospital in Lisbon:

This is a built set of screenshots from the proof of concept of a point and click game which had a lot of vectorial art with sprite and programatic animation.

Finally here is an example of some of the art for the series of “Oscar” games (a cat) which includes one of the release titles and one that was being prepared when we finally decided to end anteia:

User Experience

I’ve made quite a few new widgets using UI library Qt. I’ve also designed experiences in small video games (using game engines) and workflows for scientific operations (desktop).

Widgets

This section serves to provide examples of some widgets I made either in prototypes or for production. All of them were implemented in Qt (either directly in C++ or Python for the prototypes, eg PyQt or PySide).

This is an implementation I made in Qt for a switch button very tipical in mobile OS:

switchbutton

The project actually associated with another to create a kind of toggle button that accepts external widgets. This was created to great simplify the process of defining the inputs of an operation that relies heavily on multiple parameters. You’ll notice that some other customized widgets made to further improve the experience.

toggle button

The following images are from a prototype to multi-select variables from a file (in our case a type of object that can have other types of objects with different categories):

variable selection 1

variable selection 2

variable selection 3

This final example is the prototype implementation of a Ribbon alike widget in the Qt framework:

This project took some experimentation also to deal with re-sizing the ribbon:
