Duarte Folgado receives Fulbright Research Grant to work at MIT


Duarte Folgado, PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at NOVA School of Science and Technology, won the Fulbright Research Grant for the academic year 2022/23.

The student proposed to investigate the development of eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) methods applied to biomedical time series. These methods support medical decision making, help clinicians understand and interpret AI-based decisions and promote trust and transparency.

The PhD student will have the opportunity to pursue his research, in the development of algorithms to explain AI decisions in electrocardiology, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The Fulbright Program Grants offer Portuguese students and teachers the opportunity to investigate, teach or do research in the United States of America, and American students and teachers the opportunity to develop the corresponding type of activities in Portugal.
