    Bio:

    Emily Porter has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin since 2019. Previously, she was an EU Marie-Curie Fellow in the Translational Medical Device Lab at the National Univeristy of Ireland Galway. She received her Ph.D. from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in 2015, in Electrical Engineering with a focus on Computational and Applied Electromagnetics. Dr. Porter’s research focuses on the design and application of electromagnetic (EM)-based medical technologies, including for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. She also studies the dielectric properties of biologial tissues, which are fundamental to EM medical technologies.
