Currículo Resumido

Award winning post-doctoral researcher with a significant record of peer-reviewed publications and funded grants. The researcher currently is an Invited Assistant Professor at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, developing microwave imaging techniques to detect and classify breast cancer. She is the chair for COST Action TD1301 (Development of a European-based Collaborative Network to Accelerate Technological, Clinical and Commercialisation Progress in the Area of Medical Microwave Imaging). She holds a Ph.D. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (2011), and an Integrated Masters in Biomedical Engineering (2007), from the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) and Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, FCT-UNL (Faculty of Science and Technology, New University of Lisbon), respectively.
