Profile Summary

Graduated in Physics from the University of Porto, Portugal (1990), Master of Science degree (with honours) in Physics - Applied Optics from University of Kent, Canterbury, UK (1992), Ph.D. degree in Physics from University of Porto, in collaboration with Univ. of Kent, UK (1997), and recently, the D.Sc. degree (Agregação title in portuguese) in Physics from University of Porto, Portugal (2013). He has also a Executive-MBA from Católica Porto Business School (former EGE-Atlantic Business School), of Portuguese Catholic University (2011).

From 1990-98 he was Researcher at the Optoelectronics Center of INESC-Porto (now UOSE), Portugal, working on fiber optic sensing technologies. From 1996-1997 he was Technical Consultant at Group Quintas & Quintas S.A. From 1998-1999, he worked as a Project Manager at the R&D Division of ENT S.A. (EFACEC Group Corp.). In January 2001, co-founded Multiwave Networks Inc., California, USA, and in May, of the same year, he became also Director of Product Development and later Director of Operations of Multiwave Networks Portugal, Lda., Maia, Portugal (now Multiwave Photonics S.A. owned by other investors). On 2005 he was Managing Director and co-owner of BlueSpan – Intelligent Solutions of Electronics and Telecomunications, Lda. From 2006-2007 he became external Consultant of Multiwave Photonics S.A, and from 2008-2009 became Project & Product Marketing Manager of the company, leading the development of new fiber laser sources for Medical and Industrial Imaging Applications. Member of the Board-of-Directors (BoD) of ENOTECA Lda. (2008-2013).

At the present, he is Associate Professor (with DSc) at the University Fernando Pessoa, Porto, Portugal. Dr. Lobo is also Independent Expert/Consultant of European Commission (Photonics), Brussels, Belgium and of several national and international companies working on advanced fiber optic and photonics technologies for Transportation, Energy and Biomedical markets.
