Biomedical Engineering

Inês Godinho Gonçalves .

Position: PhD Student/Researcher

I am a PhD student, currently studying Biomedical Engineering, and I work on computational simulations of biological systems, with a focus on computational oncology. I strive to create meaningful models that can help biologists understand cellular proccesses. Thus, I also really like to look into data and find creative and intuitive ways to communicate the answers it may provide.

I am also eager to learn and work in different areas, as a way to express my creativity. In particular, I have been playing music for many years and it is one of my main passions.
