Personal profile


I am a Biomedical Engineer with strong interests concerning the areas of medical instrumentation and data processing. During my career, I worked in Industry and Academia gaining knowledge and insights from both worlds.

Research Interests

My research has always been focussed on understanding how biomedical engineering can help to improve clinical outcomes. I am developing techniques and technologies that occur in the human body for a wide range of applications: from wearable medical devices to rehabilitation treatments, from biometric recognition to driver safety.

Currently, I am investigating the use of proprioceptive stimulation (Whole Body and Focal Vibration) in healthy and pathological subjects with regards to motor functions and balance control.
