Paulo is the Head of the Bioelectronics and Bioenergy Research Laboratory and ERC StG laureate at the Department of Life Sciences of University of Coimbra. In 2014, he obtained his PhD in Electrical Engineering with the highest honours (Cum Laude) with a science scholarship from the Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) in The Netherlands, and in close collaboration with Philips research. As a PhD researcher, he started developing the science of biocompatible materials, circuits and their interaction with living organisms. In 2014, he started his post-doctoral research in the field of Bioelectronics at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer (MPIP) research in Mainz, Germany. In 2016, Paulo joined the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Bath (UBath) as an Assistant Professor, been appointed as the Departmental Research Staff Coordinator and have started his independent research group, (with an exceptional team of students and collaborators) and a state-of-the-art low noise characterisation laboratory, specifically designed for bioelectric and bioenergy applications. Paulo passion for unconventional approaches and blue sky research ideas have been funded and supported by highly competitive and world leading research industries as well as national and international funding agencies, amassing over 3 million euros.
