Biography

Cristina has two multi-disciplinary PhDs: one in biomedical engineering and one in semiconductors' electronics.  She is now based at the University of Bradford in the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics working as Research & Knowledge Transfer Business Development Manager. Her role is to facilitate academics interaction with government and industrial funding bodies, resulting in high quality proposals and projects. Cristina is promoting our mission to provide superior quality education with a high impact on industry, and on the country's economy, through our ‘make a difference’ alumni cohort.
