About me: I am a Research Fellow at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science, University College of London, UK. My work involves studying the electrical activity of the heart and some of its dysfunctions related to sudden cardiac death.
I obtained a joint Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Zaragoza, Spain, and the Politecnico di Milano, Italy. My Ph.D. was in the field of non-stationary biomedical signal processing and focused on the dynamic interactions between cardiovascular signals, such as heart rate, arterial pressure, respiration, photopletismographic signal, etc. I received the M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, Italy, and a degree in engineering from the Ecole Centrale Paris, France in 2006. I also worked at the Barcelona Tech (Spain, 6 months, 2008), Ecole Normale de Lyon (France, 4 months, 2010) and at Harvard Medical School of Boston (US, 4 months, 2011) as a visiting student.
I am also an amateur runner (best time 2h44’ in 42k marathon).
