Full Professor, Serra Húnter and ICREA Acadèmia Fellow at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies (DTIC) of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF). Prior to joining UPF in 2010, he enjoyed a four-year postdoctoral stay at the University of California at Berkeley (2005-2009) followed by an eight-month postdoctoral position at the CNRS- Institut Gustave Roussy (Villejuif, France). 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. He is author or coauthor of 60 publications in peer-reviewed journals, 4 book chapters and more than 35 conference contributions. He has been inventor or co-inventor of 12 families of patent applications. In 2016 he was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant for his research on microstimulators for neuroprosthetics. 

His research is focused on bioelectrical phenomena and, in particular, on exploring the use of these phenomena for implementing new methods and devices for biomedical applications. Specifically, his main research topics are electroporation, particularly for tissue ablation, electrical bioimpedance for diagnostic purposes and injectable electronics for neuroprosthetics.
