Currently, I am an Associate Professor (tenure) at the University of Madeira, where I teach for the Informatics and Interactive Media Design Masters; researcher of the NOVA Laboratory for Computer Science and Informatics, and president of the International Society for Virtual Rehabilitation. I received my Msc. in telecommunications engineering from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC) and a PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETHZ). I have pursued research at several institutes in Europe and the USA, including the Laboratoire de Production Microtechnique at the EPFL (Lausanne), the Institute of Neuroinformatics at the ETHZ (Zurich), at the Institute of Audiovisual Studies at the Technology Department of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona), where I was a Juan de la Cierva research fellow and head of the Robotic Systems Laboratory at the laboratory for Synthetic Perceptive, Emotive and Cognitive Systems (SPECS), and the Quality of Life Technologies and Entertainment technology centers of the Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh). My scientific goal is to investigate biological systems' underlying neural mechanisms and exploit them using real-world artefacts, with particular emphasis on neuro-rehabilitation systems, interactive technologies, and robots.
