Illustration of the Cross Talks podcast. It reads

Cross Talks is a podcast series by the UT Austin Portugal Program that will walk you through the wonders of science-business collaboration. Monthly, we will be exploring emerging topics in the areas of Advanced Computing, Medical Physics, Nanotechnologies and Space-Earth Interactions as we delve into the Program’s ground-breaking industry-driven research projects, selected through the 2019 Strategic Research Project (SRP) Call.

In our eighth episode, we talked with Arlindo Marques (Product Manager of the Aerospace Department at Efacec), Clara Lázaro (Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Science of the University of Porto & Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research), Paulo Figueiredo (Data Scientist at Centre of Engineering and Product Development), and Brandon A. Jones (Assistant Professor at the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at UT Austin) about their project MAGAL Constellation. Together, they explained why one of the largest consortia selected through the 2019 SRP Call is developing a constellation of small satellites to study ocean level variations and climate change.

Presented by Adriana Costa and produced by Andreia Passos (UT Austin Portugal Executive Director) and Adriana Costa (UT Austin Portugal Communication Team – PT Office).
