I did a Telecomunications Engineering Degree and a Master in Biomedical Engineering, by Universitat Politécnica de Valencia and Universitat de Valencia. My PhD program was on Technologies of Health and Welfare with the title "Non-invasive identification of atrial fibrillation drivers". I focused my research career on mapping and therapeutical technologies for cardiac arrhythmias, from experimental, clinical and computational aspects. During my pre-doctoral training, I did a research stay at the Center for Arhythmia Research at University of Michigan under the guidance of Dr. O. Berenfeld. On my postdoctoral track, I did a 12-months research period at the Cardiovascular Department of the Stanford University, under the guidance of Dr. S.M. Narayan, and a second 18--months research period at the Hospital Gregorio Marañón, Madrid, under the guidance of Dr. F. Atienza. I am founder of two technology-based companies: Corify Health Care S.L. and Proteu Tecnología Aplicada Coop. V. and I usually participate in cardiology and biomedical engineering conferences such as Heart Rhythm, Computer in Cardiology, ACC, AHA, CASEIB, WIICT, etc.
