Beatriz Costa Gomes

Turing Research Fellow, The Alan Turing Institute

Bea is currently a Turing Research Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, working in the Health programme. Her first contact with the Turing was as an Enrichment Student, starting in October 2019. She completed her PhD in Bioimage Analysis at the University of Manchester. In 2021, Bea returned to the Turing as a Postdoctoral research Associate for the data science for science and humanities program.

Before moving to the UK in 2016, Bea completed her integrated Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Coimbra, in Portugal, where she is originally from. She has always been interested in applying computational methods and solutions to further understand neurodegenerative diseases. Bea is passionate about bridging the gaps between computer science and biology.

In her free time, Bea bakes as a stress-relief and is a wannabe stand-up comedian. As a science communicator, Bea is one of the hosts of the Turing Podcast and is often speaking or moderating in public engagement activities.
