Miguel Santos is an artist and a researcher at the Arts and Design Research Lab (LIDA), ESAD.CR, Polytechnic of Leiria. His practice intersects art and science methodologies to investigate subjectivity's interdependency with nature. His current interests are producing works of art for nonhuman beings and geomorphic systems to decentre human importance in the world.

In 2011, he was awarded a Ph.D. in Fine Arts by Sheffield Hallam University, Poetics of the Interface: Creating Works of Art that Engage in Self-Reflection, which aimed at understanding the value of artists employing noise (disturbances) in the production of interfaces (i.e., films, videos, photographs, sculptures, etc.) and its implications on the observer's interpretation and formation of the work of art.

He participated in several artist-in-residence projects, for example, at the California Arts Institute (USA, 2009); in Longyearbyen, Svalbard Islands (Norway, 2009); in synthetic biology at the German Cancer Research Centre (Germany, 2013-14); looking at water entanglements, with a Leverhulme Trust artist-in-residence grant at the Geography Department, Durham University (UK, 2015-16).
