G. Minas graduated in industrial electronics engineering in 1994, received the M.Sc. degree in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in 2004, all from the University of Minho, Guimar\E3es, Portugal. Her thesis work was in cooperation with the Laboratory for Electronic Instrumentation, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, and dealt with lab-on-a-chips for biological fluids analysis. Between 1995 and 2004 she was a Lecturer, between 2004 and 2010 Assistant Professor, and since 2010 she is Associate Professor at the Department of Industrial Electronics, University of Minho, where she is involved in biomedical microdevices research. Her research is basically focussed on lab-on-a-chip devices for microfluids mixing with on-chip integration of electronic circuits, optical filters, sensors, biosensors and microactuators.
