Biographic Notes
Teresa Barata is a researcher at IA / Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra. She was awarded a first degree in Geology (scientific branch) by the Faculty for Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra in 1987, a Master degree in MSc in Mineralurgy and Mine Planning (image analysis), Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa in 1993 and PhD in Engineering Sciences, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, in 2001. She is a member of IA since 2021.

Current research interests focus on image analysis, solar activity, space weather, and space weather effects on economic sectors. In particular, she studies the automatic detection of solar activity phenomena such as sunspots, flares, coronal mass ejection (CME) and filaments that can impact economic sectors, particularly GNSS signal and air navigation. She is a member of the Direction Board of the Geophysical and Astronomical Observatory of the University of Coimbra (OGAUC). She is also currently the International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI) National Coordinator for Portugal.
