Joana Fernandes

PhD Student

I am licensed by the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança in Biomedical Engineering and Master in Industrial Engineering - Branch of Electrical Engineering. I attend the Doctoral Program in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Porto.

Regarding my professional experience, I was part of the development of software capable of detecting speech pathologies. This software was developed in MatLab software. It was part of my responsibility to develop the algorithm that allowed to extract the necessary speech parameters for later identification. It was necessary to develop a graphical interface to be able to collect sound files. These, after the collection and before the extraction of the parameters, underwent some signal processing necessary for the collection of the parameters to be the best possible and thus finally to be identified if the subject was healthy or pathological, and if it was pathological what the disease was. This software was developed within the scope of the IAPMEI - Startup Voucher 2018 program.

During the second semester of the academic year 2019/2020 I taught practical classes of Digital Signal Processing, at the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, to the courses of Informatics Engineering and Electrotechnical and Computer Engineering.
