Inês is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Resilient Computing and Cybersecurity Center (RC3). Her research interests include resilience, fault- and intrusion-tolerant systems, computer architecture, hardware design, FPGA security, open-source hardware, and hardware description languages (HDLs).

Before coming to KAUST, she worked as a Research Scientist at Intel Labs (Germany), where she explored safety features in the realms of open-source hardware and chiplets. In 2022, she obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Luxembourg where, being part of the CritiX group of the Interdisciplinary Center for Security, Reliability, and Trust (SnT), she researched architectural support for hypervisor-level intrusion tolerance in multiprocessor systems-on-chip (MPSoCs). In the same year, she worked as a Research Associate in the same group, looking into NoC security and FPGA-based matrix accelerators.

Her Bachelor’s and Master’s studies were completed at the University of Lisbon, where she also worked as a Junior Researcher in the LaSIGE research unit (Navigators group).
