Background and activities

PhD Signal Theory and Communications (University of Vigo, Spain, 2011) MSc in Telecom Engineering (University of Vigo, Spain, 2007).

I research in the fields of acoustics and ultrasonics. Currently, I am developing new beamforming techniques to improve the ultrasound imaging of acoustically hard surfaces. My aim is to improve the visualization of bone tissue in ultrasound images to support intraoperative monitoring of spinal surgery.

In the past, I have researched on the biological effects of high intensity ultrasound, acoustic spectroscopy, binaural sound synthesis, environmental noise, building acoustics and acoustic metrology.
