"Overleaf represents freedom of creation, sharing, and novelty." – Maria Luiza Linhares Dantas
Maria recently completed her Masters degree in Astrophysics at the University of Sao Paulo, and we're delighted to welcome her as a new Overleaf Advisor!
In this short interview she explains why she applied to be an Advisor and how she's been using Overleaf in her recent work.

NOTE: This article discusses the integration of IEEE Collabratec™ and the (now legacy) Overleaf v1 platform. Subsequent to initial publication of this blog post (15 December, 2015), the next generation of Overleaf (Overleaf v2) has been scheduled for launch on 4 September, 2018. At the time of writing this note (17 August, 2018) the IEEE Collabratec™ integration is not yet available within Overleaf v2: we are working on the implementation and expect it to be fully operational shortly after Overleaf v2 is launched.
Earlier this year we announced a new collaboration with the IEEE to integrate Overleaf into the IEEE Collabratec™ platform.
Here's our short guide to help you get started, where we cover how to:
- Get set up by linking your Overleaf and Collabratec accounts
- Save existing Overleaf documents into your Collabratec library
- Open your Collabratec LaTeX projects directly in Overleaf for editing online
- Make changes and keep documents and metadata in-sync across both platforms
- Create new research papers using the IEEE LaTeX templates with your metadata pre-filled in on Overleaf

Congratulations and thanks to Dr. Arindam Basu and the Research Committee of the College of Education, Health, and Human Development CoEHHD for organizing an interactive Overleaf overview presentation at the University of Canterbury at Christchurch in New Zealand.
As a champion of collaborative research, Arin’s aim for this workshop was to introduce and encourage the use of Overleaf as a collaborative writing tool among students and academic faculty members. In addition, Arin is creating some basic tutorials that will be available soon in Overleaf’s help section of the website. We value Arin’s continued use, support, and promotion of Overleaf.
As a result, Overleaf is delighted to name Arin Basu as Advisor of the Month for November, 2015. Thank you Arin!

Earlier this month we spoke with Shri (Srinidhi Bheesette) who works in the MARS bio-imaging group at the University of Otago. His research group is using Overleaf for collaborative group work to support longer-term knowledge transfer, and in our short interview we find out more about the benefits a cloud-based collaboration platform brings to his group.
