Postdoctoral Researcher

Eduardo is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Bogacz Group, where his work focuses on the design of computational models to help guide the optimisation of closed-loop DBS paradigms in Parkinson's disease. 

Eduardo completed his Ph.D. in Neural Engineering at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in the groups of Prof. Micera and Prof. Courtine. His work was on the development of closed-loop spinal cord stimulation paradigms for gait rehabilitation after spinal cord injury (SCI). This implied implementing models and real-time control algorithms that automatically optimise stimulation parameters based on continuous feedback of locomotor performance. He had the chance to extensively validate these strategies on different rodent and non-human primate models of SCI. Some of these approaches showed great promises to help tailor stimulation profiles to subject-specific deficits of gait and balance. 

Prior to his Ph.D., Eduardo obtained an M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from Edinburgh University.

Broadly, Eduardo is fascinated by the idea of developing smart technologies that dynamically interact with the nervous system, in particular in the context of personalising neuroprosthetic interventions and treatments. He is particularly compelled by applications of such approaches for improving therapies for Parkinson's disease and other neuromotor disorders.
