Ph.D. 2006, Nottingham, UK.  Advisor:   John W. Barrett
I work as a postdoctoral fellow at: Centro de Análise Matemática, Geometria e Sistemas Dinâmicas at IST, Lisbon, within the research group: Noncommutative geometry, groupoids and C*-algebras. Advisor: Pedro Resende http://www.math.ist.utl.pt/~pmr.  My funding is from FCT (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia).

I'm usually working on various interactions between category theory and non-commutative geometry especially with points of view arising from Crane's categorical quantum gravity. People not mentioned above that I should, are Paolo Bertozzini and Roberto Conti, who are doing some inspiring work on higher C*-categories.
