Brief biography

Dr Dafne Zuleima Morgado Ramirez is Research Associate at the Interaction Centre (UCLIC) of University College London. She has worked at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science located at the Royal National Orthopaedics Hospital at Stanmore researching assistive robotic exoskeleton technology. Before joining UCL she obtained a PhD in Biomechanics, an MSc in Biomedical Engineering, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Rehabilitation Engineering while her undergraduate degree was in Biomedical Engineering. She has also worked in industry as a Clinical Engineer.
She is a Researcher in Assistive Technology at the Global Disability Innovation hub and also member of the Global Cooperation on Assistive Technology.
Dafne is passionate about healthcare related research, fixing, making, prototyping and brainstorming ideas that are useful for society, good quality and affordable. Her research interests are human-computer interactions, HCI, biomechanics, biomedical instrumentation and signal processing and assistive and wearable technology.
