I received my BSc. degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Malaga (Spain) in 2016 and my MSc. degree in Biomedical Engineering (Neural & Motor Systems specialization) at the University of Twente, in 2018. During my MSc thesis I assessed ankle joint stiffness during static and dynamic conditions, via system identification algorithms.
Currently, I am a PhD candidate at the Neuromechanical Modeling & Engineering Lab at the UT. My PhD is part of the Dutch NWO-TTW-Perspectief Project ExoAid. This program aims at developing wearable exoskeletons to augment or restore human motor functions. Specifically, I am working on subproject 8: Exo-Aid to support workers. I am working on real-time musculoskeletal EMG-driven models to control trunk exoskeletons. Our goal is to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders in dynamic heavy lifting (industry workers) or static high-precision work (medical surgeons).
