João Pedro Morais is a Portuguese mathematician working in the areas of Clifford and quaternionic analysis. In 2000, he started his undergraduate studies in Applied Mathematics and Computation at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Aveiro (Portugal). During the third year of studies he was invited to complete his undergraduate studies at the Institute of Mathematics and Physics, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (Germany) through the ERASMUS Programme. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (Germany) in 2009. After that he worked for 7 months as a postdoctoral researcher at the same University. In 2010 he was invited to join the Institute of Applied Analysis at the Freiberg University of Mining and Technology (Germany) as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2014 he joined the Department of Mathematics of the University of Aveiro (Portugal) as a postdoctoral researcher. João Pedro Morais is working as an Associate Professor at the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (México) since January 2015. His research interests include approximation theory, orthogonal polynomials, and special functions, conformal and quasiconformal mappings, signal and image processing. He is co-author of a teaching handbook directed to postgraduate students, 46 papers (including 5 book chapters), 25 papers in proceedings of high-class International Scientific Conferences, and 1 Dissertation. His work has about 488 Citations. Due to his outstanding research results in the field of Computational and Applied Mathematics, in September 2013 he was awarded with the “Highest distinction” by the European Society of Computational Methods in Sciences, Engineering and Technology. He belongs to the National System of Researchers of Mexico.
