Dr Cristina Portalés (PhD in Geodesy and Cartography, 2008) is senior researcher at the Institute of Robotics and Information and Communication Technologies at Universitat de València (Spain), where she previouslyhad been a Juan de la Cierva post-doc fellow. She formerly graduated with a double degree: Engineer in Geodesy and Cartography from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain) and MSc in Surveying and Geoinformation from Technische Universität Wien (Austria). Afterwards she was a PhD research fellow at the Mixed Reality Laboratory of the University of Nottingham (UK, 2005) and at the Interaction and Entertainment Research Centre of the Nanyang University of Singapore (Singapore, 2006). She was the first woman to receive the best paper EH Thompson Award, given by the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (2010). From 2011-2012 she worked at AIDO (technological institute of Optics, Colour and Imaging), being primarily involved in the technical management of the FP7 project SYDDARTA. She is the author of more than 50 scientific publications including international conferences, high impact journals, books and book chapters. Her current research interests are focused on geometric calibration, image processing, 3D reconstruction, multispectral imaging, HCI and augmented reality.
