Dra. Caterina Fuster-Barceló

Who I am

As an accomplished post-doctoral researcher, I am proud to be part of AI4Life, an ambitious project under the Horizon Europe Work Program that unites 10 leading partners from 8 countries in a comprehensive 3-year, 4 million EUR effort. Working closely with my supervisor, Dr. Arrate Muñoz Barrutia, who has made big strides in the field of AI and Microscopy.

I recently defended my PhD in Computer Science and Technology, earned at the prestigious Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) under the guidance of Dr. Pedro Peris and Dr. Carmen Cámara. With a strong academic foundation, including a B.Sc. in Telematics Engineering from the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) and a M.Sc. in Cybersecurity from UC3M, I am well-equipped to tackle the challenges of AI.

In addition to my research, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and expertise with a diverse range of communities, which is why I participate in Skype A Scientist and have presented my groundbreaking thesis at numerous conferences to audiences from various backgrounds.
