Research in Neuroscience and Machine Learning
I am an engineer working at the intersection of technology and neuroscience, with a deep passion for investigating the intricacies of the human brain to contribute to a greater understanding and improvement of our mental health as a society.
I graduated in Telecommunications Engineering at Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC). After working in academia and completing my master thesis at MIT, I joined Starlab as a Research Engineer, working in applied neuroscience R&D with a focus on EEG signal processing and data analysis for Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (tDCS, tACS and tRNS). After two years, I joined the Neuroelectrics team (Starlab’s spinoff company) and I moved to Boston as a Technical Manager to open the first international offices of the company. During the following years I combined my job at Neuroelectrics with my PhD in Neuroscience at University of Barcelona, in collaboration with Harvard Medical School, where I explored the use of deep learning techniques applied to EEG data to study brain dynamics and physiological biomarkers, as well as the use of transcranial current stimulation as a neuromodulation technique to improve executive function in healthy and clinical populations.
I am currently the Neurotech Innovation Lead at the Neuroscience Product Development division of Genentech/Roche in San Francisco (CA), where my goal is to identify and develop new technologies at the intersection of engineering, AI and medicine, bringing neurotech into biotechnology and leading the transformation of traditional diagnostics and therapies for psychiatric disorders. I am currently working on different projects using machine learning to develop EEG-based biomarkers to predict disease progression, improve patient stratification and predict treatment response.

The book “Women in Silicon Valley " is an inspiring and illuminating collection of stories from women who have broken barriers, shattered glass ceilings, and blazed trails in their respective fields. Divided into three sections, the book highlights the contributions of women in STEM, diversity and inclusion, and innovation, paving the way for the next generation of female leaders.
The first section celebrates the achievements of women in STEM, a field that has traditionally been male-dominated. These women share their journeys, challenges, and strategies to succeed in a highly competitive and rapidly evolving industry. They offer insights into the importance of mentorship, networking, and perseverance in overcoming obstacles and achieving success.
The second part highlights women who are champions of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. These women are passionate about creating workplaces where everyone feels valued and respected. Through their stories, these women share insights into the strategies they use to foster diversity and inclusion. They offer advice on how to create a culture where everyone feels welcome and valued in the workplace.
The final section of the book showcases women who are leading the way in innovation. These women are at the forefront of technology, strategic management, and leadership in their respective fields. They are driving change and pushing the boundaries of what is possible. In their biographies, these women share insights into the strategies they use to drive innovation, offer advice on how to create a culture of innovation within an organization and how to stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly changing business environment. These women are true visionaries, and their stories are an inspiration to anyone who wants to make a difference and drive change in their organization.
Overall, “Women in Silicon Valley” is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn from the experiences of successful women leaders. These women are true trailblazers, and their stories offer invaluable insights into the challenges and opportunities that come with being a woman in leadership. This book is an inspiration not only for women but for anyone who wants to make a positive impact in their organization and beyond.
This chapter is part of the book “Sex and Gender Bias in Technology and Artificial Intelligence: Biomedicine and Healthcare Applications”, which will be published this upcoming March 2022.
The book details the integration of sex and gender as critical factors in innovative technologies (artificial intelligence, digital medicine, natural language processing, robotics) for biomedicine and healthcare applications. By systematically reviewing existing scientific literature, a multidisciplinary group of international experts analyze diverse aspects of the complex relationship between sex and gender, health and technology, providing a perspective overview of the pressing need of an ethically-informed science. The reader is guided through the latest implementations and insights in technological areas of accelerated growth, putting forward the neglected and overlooked aspects of sex and gender in biomedical research and healthcare solutions that leverage artificial intelligence, biosensors, and personalized medicine approaches to predict and prevent disease outcomes. The reader comes away with a critical understanding of this fundamental issue for the sake of better future technologies and more effective clinical approaches.
