About

Paulo Aguiar graduated in Physics (BSc+MSc) from Instituto Superior Técnico, U. of Lisbon, Portugal, and completed his PhD in Computational Neuroscience from the Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation, U. of Edinburgh, UK, in 2006. Between 2006 and 2008 he worked as a postdoc at the Institute for Molecular and Cellular Biology (IBMC), Portugal, in the Neuroscience Research Unit. In 2008 he was awarded an "FCT Ciência" position (Inv Auxiliar) and became Lecturer in Biomathematics at the Center for Mathematics of U of Porto (CMUP), Portugal. In 2014 he then joined the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (INEB), Portugal, as Assistant Researcher (Inv Auxiliar). Presently he is a PI at i3S-INEB and leader of the team "Neuroengineering and Computational Neuroscience", where he continues his research on neuroinformatics, neural engineering, and mathematical/computational models in biology/medicine.
