I am a mathematician working on Classical Analysis and Special Functions. Since March 2015 I am a FCT Postdoctoral Fellow in the Centre for Mathematics at University of Coimbra and faculty member of the PhD Program in Mathematics of the Universities of Coimbra and Porto.

Some of my recent papers are listed below (for a full list of publications see MathSciNet)
