Teresa Natale earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Systems Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Bari in 2020.
In October 2020, she began the Electronic Engineering master’s course at the Polytechnic University of Bari.
In September 2021, she won a scholarship allowing her to write her thesis abroad, an initiative launched by the Polytechnic University of Bari.
She did this thesis work from June 1st, 2022 to September 30th, 2022 at the Physics Department, at the Biomolecular Photonics Laboratory, University of Bielefeld (Germany).
In October 2022, she received her Master’s Degree, defending her thesis on the implementation of confocalization techniques for a Bessel beam light sheet fluorescence microscopy system by programming an FPGA board.
Teresa joined the Micro Nano Sensor Group in November 2022 as a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Information Engineering. She is currently working on a research project designing fiber optic gyroscopes based on the Sagnac effect.
Her research fields of interest are related to inertial photonic sensors for aerospace applications and biomedical sensors for vital sign monitoring.
