Biography

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Biomechanical Engineering at University of Twente.

I received the BSc. degree in mechanical engineering (2012) from VIA University College (Denmark) and the MSc. degree in industrial engineering (2013) from University of Extremadura (Spain). In 2018, I received the Ph.D. degree with honors (cum laude) in electrical, electronics and automation engineering from the University Carlos III of Madrid (Spain). It was awarded by the Economy and Competitiveness Ministry of Spain.

During my Ph.D. I worked developing and testing a robotic platform (CPWalker: smart-walker and exoskeleton) for gait rehabilitation and training in children with Cerebral Palsy and similar motor disorders. In 2015, and subsequently in 2016, I was granted a fellowship of the Programme for the Training of Researchers of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain in I+D foreign centres. Within this programme I carried out two research visits: Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (USA, 2016) and University of Twente (The Netherlands, 2017).
