The research interests cover two main areas: 1) Calciotropic hormones function and evolution and 2) Mechanisms of sex differentiation and the role of steroids and their receptors in reproduction and behaviour. Fish are used as the basic models of study, but other models, are also used to test specific evolutionary questions or because of ease of manipulation. The PI uses an integrative approach, from molecular biology and genomics, to in vitro and whole organism physiology. Current questions under investigations are: 1) Roles, mechanisms of action and evolution of PTH family of peptides and Stanniocalcins, 2) What are the primary sex determinants in fish, 3) What is the origin, chemical nature and roles of pheromones in fish; 4) Olfactory receptors and signal transduction; 5) Reciprocal relationship between sex hormones and behaviour.
Manuel Aureliano is Associate Professor of Biochemistry (With Habilitation in Inorganic Biochemistry) and he was Director of Biochemistry degree at the University of Algarve, Portugal for more than one decade, from 1998 to 2013. He was a Monitor at the University of Coimbra, and he obtained the Biochemistry degree in 1986, the MSc degree in Cell Biology in 1991 and a PhD in Bioenergetics in 1996. He supervised and co-supervised, since 1996/97 until now, more than 90 research studies for undergraduate, MSc and PhD students. At the University of Algarve, he is responsible for the teaching of the disciplines of Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Advanced topics in Cell biology and Inorganic Biochemistry. He specializes in the biological effects of decavanadate, especially in the regulation and mechanism of muscle contraction. Actually, in the Algarve Centre for Marine Sciences (CCMar) is research concentrates in the understanding the POMs interactions with proteins and the mechanisms of POMs toxicity.
José Valente de Oliveira received the Ph.D. (1996), M.Sc. (1992), and the “Licenciado” degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering (1988), all from the IST, Technical University of Lisbon. Currently he is a Faculty at the University of Algarve with research interests in interdisciplinary areas of computational intelligence and machine learning. José Valente de Oliveira is an Associated Editor of the Journal of Intelligent & Fuzzy Systems, IOS Press, and co-editor of the books Advances in Fuzzy Clustering and Its Applications, Wiley 2007; and Human-Computer Interaction: The Agency Perspective, Springer, 2012.

Dean of School of Tourism, Sports and Hospitality, full professor, affiliated to Universidade Europeia and Universidade do Algarve. She is also affiliated at CEFAGE, Research center award by national science foundation. She hold a Bachelor’s degree from University of Algarve (Portugal), a Master from ISEG, University of Lisbon (Portugal), a Ph.D. from University of Algarve in tourism demand (Portugal) and an aggregation from University of Algarve; all relating to tourism and hospitality management. She have had published, a wider range of articles in top-tier journals such as (i.e. Annals, TM, JTR, IJHM, JTTM, among others), conference papers in more than 40 countries and chapter books released by Elsevier, Routledge, CABI, Emerald, Cambridge Scholars Publishing. She act as an editorial board member of JTR, JBR, Anatolia, TA, IJCTHR. In addition, she had served as an ad-hoc reviewer for many other tourism, hospitality and leisure journals. She is also involved in several tourism-based national and international research projects, particularly with hers partners based in Europe. Developing such partnerships has resulted in publishing quality journal papers, conference presentations and book chapters. She was also invited as a guest lecturer in STHM, Hong Kong Polytechnic, at Stonehill College, Easton, MA, USA, and at Cartagena University, at international level, at national level she collaborates with ISEG, Aveiro University, IPL and ESHTE.
She has also organized conferences or acting as part of the scientific committee worldwide, in ATMC and CPTHL. Her work has received over 107 citations in ISI-referenced journals and over 1050 citations counted by Google Scholar. Recently, she was ranked among the top 100 tourism researchers in terms of the number of publications from 1975-2014 (McKercher, 2015) nominated as an outstanding reviewer by Emerald (2014), among other awards and recognitions. Her research interests entails tourism consumer behavior, marketing, and image. Tourism economics and models are also one of her research passions
I am PhD in Economics - Knowledge and Innovation, MSc in Regional Economics and graduate in Economics. My main research interests are innovation systems, knowledge networks, regional development, public policy and resilience. I am also interested in the discussion of Economics as a science and the economic crisis.
Thomas Panagopoulos graduated in Forest Engineering in 1990 at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Greece, had M.Sc. in Renewable Natural Resources in 1992, and PhD in Forestry and Natural Environment in 1995. His main research fields are “landscape restoration”, “landscape planning and sustainability”. Has been Department Head and Landscape Architecture Master Degree Director at the University of Algarve, Portugal and at the Doctoral Program “Innovation and Land Management”. He was founding member and Vice-president of the Centre of Spatial Research and Organizations at the University of Algarve (http://www.cieo.pt/). Since 2011 was elected at the Executive board of the UNISCAPE (the Network of Universities for the implementation of the European Landscape Convention: http://www.uniscape.eu/). Editorial board of various scientific journals: Transactions on Environment and Development, Spatial and Organizational Dynamics, International Journal of Energy and Environment, International Journal of Sustainable Agricultural Management and Informatics, Heliyon. Invited Academic Lecturer of various Universities and Research Organizations, and author of more than 250 publications. He organized 15 International conferences related to Landscape Architecture, Urban Development, Environment and Sustainability. He has acted as principal investigator, co-principal investigator and investigator in a total of approved funding of over 7.9 million euros. This is a result of his research strategy that crosses many disciplinary boundaries to create a holistic transdisciplinary approach to science, and his multi-cultured background in fostering research at international level.
For +10 yrs I've worked on fish biology, initially studied age and growth of fishes from several habitats and then moved on to study the ecology of fish larval stages (of the anadromous twaite shad-the theme of my PhD). In the last 10 yrs or so, I've been changing the focus of my research interests to seafood quality - making my primary interests coincide w/ my current appointment as Professor Adjunto in the Departamento de Engenharia Alimentar do Instituto Superior de Engenharia da Universidade do Algarve (UAlg ISE), wherein I carry out/supervise research and teach undergrad (BTech and BEng) and grad (MTech and MSc) courses in Seafood Technology/Processing and Quality, Sensory Analysis (Sensometrics) and Statistical Process Control, and Applied Statistics/Experimental Design; I also represent UAlg (ISE) in the technical committee on seafood (CT-25) of the Instituto Português da Qualidade. My current research interests deal with the study (and statistical modelling) of sensory, physical-chemical and microbiological changes in fish and seafood products, both high-valued species such meagre, shrimp or clams as well as under-utilized species like mackerels or catsharks. I'm becoming more involved and active in projects/activities of knowledge transfer and transfer of technology related with seafood processing and quality.
