Adélia Sequeira is Full Professor of Mathematics at the IST (Instituto Superior Tecnico), University of Lisbon in Portugal and Director of the Research Center on Computational and Stochastic Mathematics. She received her Doctoral Degree in Numerical Analysis in 1981, at École Polytechnique in Paris, France, and a second Doctoral degree in Mathematics in 1985, at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. In January 2001 she received from IST the Habilitation degree in Applied Mathematics and Numerical Analysis. From 2001-2007 she served as Director of the Research Centre on Mathematics and its Applications (CEMAT/IST).
Currently, her research interests are in the area of cardiovascular mathematical modelling and simulations of closely connected problems of clinical relevance associated with vascular diseases: patient-specific cerebral aneurysms progression; biomechanical and biochemical actions in blood vessels, with application to thrombosis and atherosclerosis processes. She is also interested in mathematical and computational fluid dynamics, particularly focused on viscoelastic non-Newtonian fluids and on hemorheology and hemodynamics studies.
