Biographic Notes
Catarina Lobo is an Assistant Professor at the Physics and Astronomy Department of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. She was awarded a first degree in Physics/Applied Mathematics (branch in Astronomy) by the University of Porto in 1992, a DEA by the University of Paris in 1993 and a PhD by the University of Paris in 1997. She is an Effective Associate of the Center for Astrophysics of the University of Porto (CAUP) since 2000, integrating since 2015 the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences (IA).

Current research interests focus on the study of the physical properties of galaxies and their evolution. In particular, she studies environmental effects on cluster galaxies.
