Research: Integrated

Aurélio Faria is a Professor with tenure who teaches Sport and Exercise Biomechanics at the University of Beira Interior (Portugal). He received his PhD in Sport Sciences from the same University in 2010, conducting research on musculo-articular stiffness. Since 2009 he is member of the Research Center in Sports Sciences, Health Sciences and Human Development and since 2015 he is the Director of the Biomechanics Laboratory of the Human Movement (UBI@Motion Lab).

His research interests center on biomechanics of the lower limb with emphasis on the biomechanical properties of muscle-tendon unit and in the application of functional data analysis and non-linear analysis to evaluate movement patterns and components associated to human movement variability.

He is a member of the Portuguese Society of Biomechanics and the European Society of Biomechanics. He is the author of several peer reviewed scientific research papers, patents, book chapters and software. In 2018 he was one of the tree winners of the II cross-border market-oriented prototypes.
