António Prieto Veloso

António Veloso is Full Professor at the University of Lisbon, since 2010. He is the Director of the PhD Program in Kinesiology at the Faculty of Human Kinetics from the University of Lisbon, also been responsible for the PhD in Biomechanics of this program since 2011 being also the director of the Biomechanics and Functional Morphology Laboratory of the University of Lisbon.  He has served as Vice Dean at the Faculty of Human Kinetics of the University of Lisbon, between 2005 and 2009. Was also Head of Sports and Health Department at the same institution from 2012 until 2016.

António served as President for the Portuguese Society of Biomechanics between 2005-2009, as member of the Board of Directors for the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports for three terms between 2005-2011 and more recently served 6 years as member of the executive council of the International Society of Biomechanics where he was responsible for the programs for the ISB affiliated societies, the ISB technical groups and also the ISB EDC countries support programs.

António has published more than 200 papers in peer reviewed academic journal and in congress proceedings. His research interests include the biomechanics of human movement, where he focuses on the development of experimental methodologies, including the modelling and simulation of mechanical loads on the musculoskeletal system.
