Joao G. Ferreira is a Professor in Environmental Engineering at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon, Portugal. He was educated in the U.K. and Portugal in the areas of oceanography and environmental sciences.

He has coordinated the modelling component of thirteen European and six other international research projects over the last twenty years, in areas such as aquaculture, eutrophication, and coastal zone management. He has published about sixty papers in peer-reviewed journals, several book chapters, and coordinated the publication of the FORWARD (, SPEAR (, and SMILE ( books.

He is the author of the EcoWin system-scale ecological modeling software, and co-author of the FARM carrying capacity model, used for local-scale aquaculture modeling.
