Ana Fred
Instituto de Telecomunicações and Instituto Superior Técnico - Lisbon University

Brief Bio
Ana Fred received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 1989 and 1994, respectively, both from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal. She is a Faculty Member of IST since 1986, where she has been a professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and more recently with the Department of Biomedical Engineering. She is a researcher at the Pattern and Image Analysis Group of the Instituto de Telecomunicações. Her main research areas are on pattern recognition, both structural and statistical approaches, with application to data mining, learning systems, behavioral biometrics, and biomedical applications. She has done pioneering work on clustering, namely on cluster ensemble approaches. Recent work on biosensors hardware (including BITalino – and ECG-based biometrics (Vitalidi project) have been object of several nacional and internacional awards, as well as wide dissemination on international media, constituting a success story of knowledge transfer from research to market. She has published over 160 papers in international refereed conferences, peer reviewed journals, and book chapters. ... More >>

Hugo Gamboa

Doctoral Consortium Co-Chairs

Bruno Wacogne

Brief Bio
Bruno Wacogne received his Ph.D. degree in optoelectronics in 1993 from the University of Franche-Comté, France. His Ph.D. dissertation was on tunable external cavity laser diodes using electrooptic properties of LiNbO3 and nematic liquid crystals. A few years ago, he started to work on the use of micro-optics and microtechniques for biomedical applications. His main topics now concern opto-microsystems and systems for In Vitro Fertilisation, biomedical devices, screening, and diagnosis.
