Micro and Nanofabrication Facility
Andrea Gouvêa is a research engineer in the Microfabrication and Exploratory Nanotechnology group at INL providing technical and hands-on expertise on advanced systems and techniques.
She has an MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Coimbra where she worked in the development of an electronic system for Time-of-Light (TOF) Positron-Emission Tomography (PET) using Resistive Plate Chamber (RPC) detectors. She obtained her PhD in Physics Engineering from the University of Coimbra where an X-ray detection system for the determination of the Lamb Shift was developed and implemented. During her PhD she worked in between GIAN (Instrumentation Group for Atomic and Nuclear Physics) in Coimbra, Max-Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany and PSI (Paul Scherrer Institute) in Villigen, Switzerland, where she collaborated and participated in CREMA Collaboration. The main responsibility was the development and maintenance of the X-ray detection system and data analysis.
In the last 3 years she worked in Amkor, packaging industry in Vila do Conde, Portugal, in the R&D team has a process integrator.
