About me

Since 04/2014: PhD student in the BSDLab

2012 - 2014: Master of Engineering in Industrial Automation at the National University of Colombia. Master thesis:
EEG-based Neuroimaging using Data-Driven Spatio-Temporal Constraints for Non Stationary Brain Activity Reconstruction [link]

2007 - 2011: Electronics engineering at the National University of Colombia

Research Interests

My research focuses on:

  1. Developing machine learning methods for decoding of brain states: Specifically for decoding neural features describing symptoms and treatment response for several neurological diseases, as Parkinson's disease, stroke, among others..
  2. Developing closed-loop strategies for neural stimulation: For improving existing treatments based on deep-brain stimulation for several neurological diseases.
