About Me
Nuno is a Professor of New Infrastructure Development. Nuno focuses his research on the design of structures and processes can bring the best of people in consensus-oriented (pluralistic) settings, and make the world a better place to live and share with future generations Nuno's research has been predominantly informed by studying new infrastructure development projects so-called 'megaprojects'. With his PhD students and collaborators, Nuno has developed theory, conceptual frameworks, and methods for communicating with key societal actors how to design and manage these capital-intensive project-based organizations. His research has investigated development processes, product and organizational architectures, and contracting and procurement strategies. More recently, Nuno has started to study the role of design in tackling the Grand Challenges of the XXI Century including population growth, climate change, and the development of the Global South . Nuno is currently working on two books: an edited book on Achieving Collective Ends with Limited Resources: Lessons from Africa's Struggle to Bridge the Infrastructure Gap (Cambridge Press, 2018); and authoring a book on Designing under Pluralism: Debunking the Performance Myth (MIT, 2018) Nuno has designed and teaches two graduate-standing courses - Megaproject Leadership and Governance and New Business Ecosystems: Infrastructure and the Shared Economy. He also teaches an undergraduate course - Projects: Organizing, Management, and Strategy.

In 2009, Nuno was the lead editor of the special issue of California Management Review Infrastructure meets Business: Building New Bridges, Mending Old Ones in 2009. Nuno co-founded and acted as research director of the MBS Centre for Infrastructure Development between 2013 and 2016. Nuno is the leading author of two books published with the Project Management Institute - Building Options at Project Front-end Strategizing (2014, with Guilherme Biesek) and Megaproject Organization and Performance: The Myth and Political Reality (2017, with Colm Lundrigan, Jeff Pinto, and Phanish Puranam). In 2013, Nuno co-founded the annual workshop series, Megaprojects Workshop: Theory meets Practice Nuno was born in Lisbon, Portugal, where he trained as a civil engineer and worked as a project manager.
