About Me

Welcome to my personal website! I'm a Portuguese scientist, futurist and entrepreneur.

My work focuses on studying the aging process and how we can manipulate it to fend off age-related diseases and improve human health. In addition, I have several hobbies, including composing music and performing stand-up comedy.

My Story

Following training at Harvard Medical School, I established my lab in England where we study aging and longevity at the University of Birmingham.

Technology will allow us to 'hack' biology and evolve beyond our current human limits, a philosophy known as transhumanism. May the dreams of today become our future.

My thoughts

As an atheist, I follow a rational philosophy and I often consider the positive and negative impact science and technology can have on humankind.

My hobbies

Working is not living. Living is music, sports, computers, movies, reading, love, laughter, traveling. Life is a gift we must flavor, not dedicate to a cause or a job.

My work

I would like our work to contribute to the development of interventions that preserve health and combat disease by manipulating the ageing process.
