Hello! My name is Miguel and this is my webpage. Since 2023 I am a Moore instructor at MIT, supervised by Davesh Maulik. Before I was a PhD student at ETH Zurich and my advisor was Rahul Pandharipande. Even before that I did my bachelor and master in Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon. My master's thesis advisors were Miguel Abreu and Leonardo Macarini.

My research mostly concerns enumerative invariants defined using moduli spaces parametrizing some sort of geometric objects. Examples include Gromov-Witten theory, stable pairs, Hilbert schemes or moduli of stable bundles.
