I joined Aston Health and Science School in April 2017, having spent the previous 24 years as a senior research scientist and professor at the Cuban Neuroscience Centre in Havana. Before joining Aston I was also a consultant in intensive care clinical neurophysiology at Clinical-Surgical Hospital Hnos Ameijeiras in Havana.
At Aston I teach modules related to clinical neurophysiology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
I am also committed to the continuing education of Latin American medical professionals on continuous EEG monitoring in intensive care for which I organize and teach focused courses on this topic in the region.
My main research interests are related to:
