In collaboration with the Queen Elizabeth Foundation for Disabled People, my research revolves around early powered mobility, and how technology can be better used to make children with severe motor impairments to take as much advantage from driving electric wheelchairs, for their overall development.

Brief biography

I obtained a BS in Mechatronics Engineering at Tecnológico de Monterrey CEM, Mexico, and due to my interest in engineering applied to medicine I pursued an MSc in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London.
