She is also co-founder of the University startup Audio Innova, for which she has designed and developed software modules to automatize preservation routines and controls for data integrity verification.
She has published her work in international peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. She has participated in several international research projects, involving some of the finest sound archives in Europe.

Post-doctoral Researcher, Portugal
Who is Cristina?
Everyone has a friend or a family member that helps with finance, taxes, banks’ dealings and all those boring (but very important) issues. The guy that solves all the bureaucratic questions or the one you always expect to have the correct answer in less than 5 minutes. Well, I think I am this “guy” in my friends and family lives. But I am a woman and sometimes I need more than 5 minutes to find all the responses. This role results from my career in management and finance fields as projects manager, professor and CEO of a micro firm.
Recently, I formally reached my major goal in life, I became a researcher. Teaching others and providing new knowledge to the world is what I found to be my mission. I am a post-doctoral researcher in finance and this is my stage, where I want to perform for the next one hundred years. As William Ernest Henley wrote in his poem Invictus, “It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul”. That’s how I often describe myself and I believe that “WomenBeing” are the masters of everything they intended to be.
