Margarida Jerónimo Barbosa

fotoI'm a PhD student at Architectural School of Lisbon (FA-ULisboa), currently collaborating with ArcHC_3D research group of FA-ULisboa. My PhD thesis deals with BIM applied to the context of Rehabilitation, and is incorporated in a FCT financed project (“ReabOp – Optimization of documentation workflows in the rehabilitation of built structures”) where our team ( is working with an engineering team from IDMEC (

The main objective of this research is to establish a methodology that incorporates all related building data in an information system, based on modeling a pre-existing architectural structure in BIM from the integrated products of 3D laser scanning and photogrammetry.
