I'm a PhD student and teacher assistant in the Communication and Information Technologies department of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. I hold a Masters in Brain and Cognition from Universitat Pompeu Fabra and a Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona. 

My research/teaching interests include the relationship between cognitive neuroscience and psychological behavior to better understand how the brain and its cognitive processes work, and how the use of real-time EEG-based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) settings can be used in a passive way and from a hypothesis-testing approach to enhance cognitive functions. Also, she is prone to the use of open-science frameworks to entail a systemic change to the way science and research are being done.

My current work focuses on a better understanding of the relationship between ongoing brain oscillations and the psychological behavior during cognitive functions, and how by means of real-time EEG-based Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) settings it is possible to boost effectiveness of such cognitive functions. In particular, how information can be sent at a particular moment in time to boost attention, perception and memory depending on the brain-state of the person.
