Tenured Associate Professor and Serra Húnter Fellow at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). Before obtaining tenure in December 2014, he benefited from a Ramón y Cajal fellowship and a Marie Curie grant at UPF for five years. Prior to joining UPF, he enjoyed a three-year postdoctoral position at the University of California at Berkeley (2005-2008) followed by an appointment as Assistant Research Engineer at the same institution for a year. Then he moved to Villejuif, France, for an eight-month postdoctoral position at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) - Institut Gustave Roussy. During 1998-2005, he was with the Biomedical Applications Group of the Centre Nacional de Microelectrònica, Bellaterra, Spain. He received a PhD in Electronics Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, in 2005. His main research topics are electroporation, particularly for cancer treatments, electrical bioimpedance for medical diagnosis and electrical stimulation for neuroprosthetics.
