I am currently a post-doctoral fellow working with Dr. Louis Collins at the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre, Montreal Neurological Institute. I did my PhD in Biomedical Engineering, McGill University, at the Montreal Neurological Institute, under the supervision of Dr. Jean Gotman. I hold a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from McGill University (GPA: 4/4) and a degree in Electronics Engineering from University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
My current research focuses on the optimization of depth electrode implantation planning. The goal is to improve the accuracy and increase the amount of information obtained during the invasive investigation of refractory patients that are candidates for surgery.
My PhD research focused on the automatic detection and analysis of High Frequency Oscillations (HFOs) in the human EEG. HFOs are emerging as a biomarker of tissue capable of producing spontaneous seizures. This could help the delineation of the surgical extent and in the prediction of surgical outcome. I developed an automatic detector of HFOs and analysed the correlates on the surface of the brain of HFOs visible on the scalp. Extensive collaboration with other fellows resulted in several publications that demonstrated the relation of HFOs with epilepsy.
My Master’s thesis was on brain computer interfaces and my Engineering thesis on biologically plausible neural networks.
