Marta is originally from Portugal, where she studied Aerospace Engineer at Instituto Superior Técnico. After completing her Master in Avionics, Marta worked at Portugália Airlines as an Operations Engineer, and later at Simteq developing simulators for pilot Training, and at CGI developing on the Galileo Project for ESA. In early 2023, Marta completed her PhD at TUDelft entitled "Conflict Resolution at High Traffic Densities with Reinforcement Learning". Marta is current an Assistant Professor at Air Transport and Operations. Her research focusses on employing artificial intelligence/machine learning to optimize operations in aviation. 


Current Projects
Title:  Colossus
Website: NA
Description: COLOSSUS paves the way for future European aviation products and services which are designed in a truly holistic approach and to thus provide a major contribution to the digital transformation of aviation and air transportation in order to enable European competitiveness in a key industrial sector. The expected outcomes of COLOSSUS provide Europe’s aviation sector with the platform to develop new and breakthrough product and technology in a holistic system-of-systems approach.

Past projects:

Title: AW-Drones
Website: www.aw-drones.eu
Description: AW-Drones supports the rulemaking process for the definition of rules, technical standards and procedures for civilian drones to enable safe and reliable operations in the European Union. The project will achieve this target through 2 sub-goals: (1) providing a repository of technical standards and “best practices” to the drone community, and (2) proposing and validating with relevant stakeholders a set of technical standards to comply with existing regulation for drone operations.
