INESC-ID doctoral student awarded Maria de Lourdes Pintasilgo Award
Maria Catarina Botelho, an Early Stage Researcher at INESC-ID, has been awarded one of the Maria de Lourdes Pintasilgo Awards (Prémios Maria de Lourdes Pintasilgo, this year in their sixth edition) in the “Young Alumna” category.
A graduate from the Integrated Masters program in Biomedical Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, Botelho is now a doctoral student in the Human Language Technologies Research Area at INESC-ID, where she is developing her thesis on the use of speech as a biomarker for speech affecting diseases under the supervision of INESC-ID faculty Isabel Trancoso and Alberto Abad, as well as Tanja Schultz (University of Bremen).
Asked what this award meant to her, Botelho recognized that “For me, receiving this award symbolizes the recognition of the effort and goals I have been striving for and achieving over the more than 9 years that I have belonged to this school. It is also an incentive to keep going!”
The Maria de Lourdes Pintasilgo Awards were delivered to its three winners today, 18 November 2022, at Instituto Superior Técnico.
