I was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1993. I received my BCs degree in Biomedical Engineering in Technical University of Madrid (UPM) in 2016. I finished my Bachelor Thesis at the Biomedical Technology Center. This focused on the techniques of magnetic hyperthermia and magnetometry. I also completed my internship in the innovation unit of the San Carlos Clinical Hospital in Madrid.I continued my academic studies and I received my MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering in University of Navarra, TECNUN, in 2018. My Master’s thesis was developed in the Neural Rehabilitation Group (Cajal Institute, CSIC) and focused on the design, the integration and the implementation of a functional electrical stimulation assistance system during the gait for patients with incomplete spinal cord injury. Currently I am working as a researcher at the Neural Rehabilitation Group.
