Simão Belchior de Castro

After working as a Web Application Developer here at UNEP-WCMC since late 2009, Simão moved to working as an Analyst Developer in the Informatics Programme in early 2012.
He is responsible for all aspects of the development of web and database applications, liaising with other Programmes here at the Centre to help assess their needs and define the IT side of their projects. He works closely with our Web Developers to build these applications and help the Centre achieve its goals.
Before joining WCMC, Simão completed an MSc at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, in Portugal. During his studies he was enrolled in the Erasmus Programme twice, spending six months in Horsens, Denmark and a further six months in Delft, The Netherlands. His Internship was in a Dutch Web Development company called Tam Tam.
