Maryam Khaksar Ghalati


Short Bio


Maryam Khaksar Ghalati  is a post-doctoral research fellow of the Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development, a research centre of the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria. Before joining CDRSP, she was a research fellow at Institute for System and Robotics, IST, University of Lisbon and a  postdoctoral fellow at CIDMA, University of Aveiro. 


Maryam joined  UC-UP PhD program in Mathematics  in  2011 after finishing her bachelor and master studies in Iran. She obtained her PhD in applied mathematics from university of Coimbra with the thesis entitled: ” Numerical Analysis and Simulation of Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for Time-Domain Maxwell’s Equations”  in 2017.  During her doctorate, she worked as a research fellow at IBIL   (Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Life Sciences)  and participated in the Special Semester on Computational Methods in Science and Engineering at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM), an institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. As a result of her research, she presented several talks in international meetings and is co-author of several research papers. 


Since  June 2018, she joined CDRSP  and her main focus of research is currently mathematical modelling of the thermal evolution in additive manufacturing process.  


Her research interests include numerical analysis, computational mathematics and numerical modelling of the problems  in biomathematics, biomedical imaging and industry.
