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:
