Currículo Resumido

Francisco Lobo is the current coordinator of the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences (IA). He is a researcher at the IA and Professor with Habilitation at the Department of Physics of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (FCUL). He was the previous Leader of the Cosmology Group (Unveiling the Dynamics of the Universe). He completed his PhD from the University of Lisbon in 2005. He has been a member of the IA since its inception. He is a member of Euclid and LISA. His current research interests include: Modified theories of gravity; energy and dark matter models; black holes; cosmology and inflationary models; exact solutions of Einstein's equations; Lorentzian wormholes and the causal structure of spacetime; analog models; quantum inequalities and quantum field theory. He has published over 180 articles in high-impact international scientific journals; has over 25 book chapter(s) and 2 books. He won the "Ciências 2020 Research Award", a prize that FCUL distinguishes its most productive researcher in the previous year. In the consecutive years of 2020 and 2021, he was placed in the top 2% of the publicly available database, published by the PLoS Biology journal, of the world's 100 000 top-scientists. He was featured as the top-ranked researcher of FCUL.
