João Henriques is a Guest Lecturer at Iscte-IUL's Sintra School of Social and Business Sciences. He is also a PhD student, and former scholarship holder (Foundation for Science and Technology, FCT), in Sociology at Iscte-IUL. His initial academic training is in the area of ​​Civil Engineering (Bachelor and Master), and later in Sociology (Master). He is a research assistant at the Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology (CIES) where he has participated in studies in various thematic areas, such as social inequalities, environment and sustainable development, social cohesion, education, employment, family and work.
Since 2022, I am teaching at ISCTE Sintra - Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, the courses of Graphs and Complex Networks, Calculus (with Python), and Applied Mathematics. In the period 2021 - 2023, I also taught at Instituto Superior de Educação e Ciências de Lisboa, courses like Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science. I am an enthusiast of science and knowledge development, and my research goals are to join topics of mathematical modelling and civil protection and society in general.I am passionate about education and my drive is to allow everyone to learn and master any skill they desire, with the right direction and strength, and for some years I have been a volunteer in a social institution teaching Portuguese and mathematics to illiterate people.I have worked in data analysis, data visualisation, data science, problem solving, and research and interpretation of data. My professional drive is to use my analytical skills to find solutions in short amounts of time, whether it requires organisation knowledge, team-working, scheduling, management, programming, or innovation.I have worked as a researcher in a project implementing mathematical and computational techniques into biological data, specifically the evolution of viruses in terms of their mutations and virulence. Unfortunately, it did not help prevent the covid-19 pandemic, but certainly projects like those help improve the knowledge which led to the quick vaccination development.In terms of academics, I have a Ph.D. from Cranfield University in the United Kingdom, which followed an M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Lisbon in Portugal. The main focus of my doctorate research was to analyse automotive supply chains and develop a synthetic network creation model which could replicate the main features of real-life supply chains. The resulting model was quite accurate, and it permits managers to know with a high degree of certainty the structure of their supply chain, with just a few data points.Regarding my soft skills, Determination and Hard Work are two of the most important in my career. No path is easy and not only “geniuses can do it"... with passion and hard work, anyone can achieve their goals.
