Apresentação Pessoal

Ricardo, born in 1972, completed the License on Sport and Physical Education in 1995 and the
Master on Sport Sciences (specialization on High Performance Sport – Swimming) in 1999, both
at the Faculty of Sport - University of Porto. He became Doctor on Sport Sciences, by the same
institution, in 2006, and presented successfully his Habilitation in 2013. He is teaching at Faculty
of Sport - University of Porto since 1995.

He is interested in Sport Sciences particularly on the biophysical characterization specially
centred on the availability and use of energy in cyclic sports (e.g. swimming, running, cycling,
rowing, surfing and kayaking): (i) determination of the athlete’s bioenergetical profile,
understanding the kinetics of oxygen consumption and lactate production, which allow
assessing the energy cost of the movement and, therefore, the definition of exercise economy
profiles for athletes of different levels and gender and (ii) relationship of these physiological
parameters with biomechanical variables, particularly with kinematics, but also kinetics,
electrical muscular activity and thermography. He also interested in planning and periodization,
and training control and evaluation of athletes in cyclic sports. Most recently, he has been
engaged in water polo game analysis (by identifying the determinant factors that affect
decisively the success of players and teams) and also on postural and muscular training aiming
for therapeutic/clinic purposes. He integrates the Porto Biomechanics Laboratory that
developed an seven force plates instrumented block for swimming starts, a cable EMG
apparatus, a startmeter for analysing intracyclic velocity fluctuations and an instrumented surf
board that can be used for data acquisition in several nautical activities.

His main skills/activities are: (i) main investigator of funded research & development projects;
(ii) editor-in-chief of a Sports Science related open journal (The Open Sports Sciences Journal of
Bentham Open) and member of the editorial board, scientific committee and review boards of
peer-reviewed scientific and technical journals; (iii) author of 111 papers in journals displayed
on Scopus, with a H index of 18 and 958 citations of his works; (iv) editor of books; (v) invited
reviewer of over than 120 manuscripts submitted to impact factor journals; (vi) supervising
experience of 14 PhD and 31 masters students; (vii) member of the scientific and organizing
committees of international level congresses (as the XXIX Annual International Symposium of
the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports’ 2011, 4th International Conference
Swimming Pool & Spa’2011 and Xth International Symposium on Biomechanics and Medicine in
Swimming’2006); (viii) member of the European College of Sport Science and of the American
College of Sport Science; (ix) chairman of podium and poster sessions in scientific events; (x)
invited speaker in Sport Sciences related Congresses (as the FINA Medical Congress’2016); (xi)
director of courses of swimming coaches education; (xi) swimming coach from 1994-2010 in the
Portuguese age-group national team, the University of Porto team and club teams.
