During my studies in biomedical engineering, I became interested in understanding brain function from a practical point of view, which led me to focus on cognitive neuroscience, language and signal processing. After my studies, I volunteered for some time at the National Center for Adaptive Neurotechnologies, a research center situated in the Wadsworth Center (New York State Health Department) located in Albany, New York. My research was focused on a system for comprehensive kinematic/EMG/EEG analyses of locomotion and other motor actions in normal volunteers and in people with spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, or other chronic neuromuscular disorders.
Based on this experience, I decided to pursue a volunteer position in neuroscientist resident at the OpenBCI, where I studied the practical basis of EEG system, motor imagery vs motor execution, language localization, among other research.
Currently, I am enrolled in a research master’s in Brain and Cognition (Cognitive Neuroscience) at the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.
