Paulo Fernando da Costa Antunes received a Physics Engineering degree in 2005, the M.Sc. in Applied Physics in 2007 and the Ph.D. in Physics Engineering in 2011 from the Aveiro University, Portugal. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Aveiro Physics Department. He is also with the I3N-Aveiro (Institute of Nanostructures, Nanomodelling and Nanofabrication) and the Instituto de Telecomunicações.
His current research interests include the study and simulation of fiber Bragg gratings, data acquisition, optical transmission systems and optical solutions for static and dynamic measurements, including medical applications and structural health monitoring. He authored or co-authored more than 150 journal and conference technical papers with emphasis on optical sensing devices and applications.
