Biography

Ana Cavaco is graduated in Biology (1992) and PhD in Biology/Plant Physiology and Biochemistry (2000), both from the University of Lisbon. Her interests include bio/optical-sensing non-invasive methods to determine fruit quality and physiological disorders (postharvest technology) as well as other organs/tissues/produce (propolis, honey, leaves,animal tissues) properties (Vis/NIR reflectance spectroscopy, spatially resolved reflectance, light scattering goniometry, Vis/NIR hyperspectral imaging, bio-luminescence, non-modulated and modulated chlorophyll a fluorescence, imaging fluorescence (blue, green, red), electronic-sensing technology such as the electronic-nose and electronic-tongue, and sensor fusion technology); B) Plant and fruit physiology and biochemistry: photosynthesis and carbon partitioning processes; physiological, biochemical and molecular mechanisms.
