In 2013, Nuno completed his MSc in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation for Environmental modelling from ITC-Faculty of Geo-information Science, University of Twente and the Faculty of Geography and Regional Studies of the University of Warsaw. His thesis topic was on the foraging behavior of the juvenile Short-toed Snake Eagle in southern Spain.
From 2013 to 2017 he worked a research fellow in the University of Coimbra and the Coimbra College of Agriculture on the projects INVADER-B and INVADER-IV. Here he has developed Remote Sensing using satellite and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to monitor the introduction of a biocontrol agent.
In 2017, he left his research fellow position to start a PhD in Leiden on the topic of Remote Sensing for conservation in Oostvaardersplassen.
His research focuses on developing big data solutions based in Remote Sensing and advanced ecoinformatics tools to monitor the flora and fauna of the Oostvaardersplassen to help understand the animal and plant dynamics occurring in this unique ecosystem.
