Sara Guerreiro is a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. In 2016, Sara was an intern in the Biomedical Electronics research group of Universitat Pompeu Fabra at Barcelona where she worked on numerical studies for the simulation of implantable neuroprosthetics behaviour. In 2018, she has received her integrated master's degree in Biomedical and Biophysics Engineering from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, with a master thesis titled "Automating daily Linac quality control using portal images". During this period, Sara Guerreiro worked in collaboration with the Radiation Oncology Department of Champalimaud Clinical Centre, developing image-based quantitative methods for radiotherapy quality control. In 2019, Sara joined the Biofabrication Group of Polytechnic of Leiria for the development of novel equipment for manufacturing drug-delivery systems for several medical applications. Nowadays, she works as a PhD student at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto in collaboration with Polytechnic of Leiria and IPO-Porto to develop and optimize gastroretentive implantable materials for the local enhancement of the radiotherapy effect.
