I received a masters in Telecommunications Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), a combination of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. As an undergraduate, I pursued several internships at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the Institute of Photonic Sciences(ICFO). In 2010 I moved to Boston to pursue my master thesis at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in collaboration with Northeastern University. After graduating, I worked as a researcher at the MIT Sea Grant department, as a consultant at Ernst & Young and as a support engineer for Applied Ocean Systems.
Following my passion for the intersection between technology and life sciences, in 2012 I joined the amazing Neuroscience department at Starlab as a research engineer, where I worked in innovative brain stimulation and monitoring technologies. In 2014 I moved to Boston as the Technical Manager of the new US offices of Neuroelectrics, a Starlab’s spinoff focused on the development of new devices to monitor and stimulate the brain.
In 2016 I started combining my work at Neuroelectrics with a PhD program at University of Barcelona in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital (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, where my ultimate goal is to identify and develop new technologies at the intersection of engineering, data/AI and medicine, bringing neurotech into biotechnology and leading the transformation of traditional diagnostics and therapies for psychiatric and neurological disorders.
