João Nuno Prata

Biography

I have a degree in Physical Engineering from the Technical University of Lisbon (1988-1993). I was an ERASMUS student at the Université Paris 7 (1992-1993). I obtained a masters degree (Diplôme d'Études Approfondies) in theoretical physics at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris (1993-94) and a PhD in Mathematical Physics at the University of Durham (U.K., 1994-1998). I am a researcher at the University of Lisbon, since 2006.
