Albert Ruiz-Vargas

Albert graduated in Electronics and Mechanical Engineering at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in 2008 and 2010, respectively. During his studies he participated in two R&D projects in Italy and Germany as part of his degree programs.  In 2010, he took a M.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Universitat Barcelona and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.  His dissertation was completed under Antoni Ivorra’s supervision at the DTIC of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the objective was to design, implement and test a high-voltage electronic system for liquid media sterilization based on electroporation. In 2013, he undertook an internship at CSIRO (Commonwealth Science and Industrial Research Organisation)  in Sydney working on fibre optics based diagnostic devices. He is now continuing these studies and researching the use of bioimpedance for develping new diagnostic devices as a PhD candidate within the Medical Device Research Institute at Flinders University (Adelaide).
