Eric Invers Rubio
Eric obtained his BSc in Biomedical Engineering in Universitat de Barcelona in 2017, and two years later, in 2019, he got his MSc in Biomedical Engineering focused in Radiology and Medical Imaging in Belgium, in Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Universiteit Gent. During his student years, he was able to participate in several research projects involving medical imaging data and radiology departments, such as during his MSc internship in Lima, Peru, and his MSc thesis in Brussels, Belgium, where he could learn about machine learning processes to perform image data analysis to quantify pulmonary ventilation in animal experiments. Nowadays, he is part of the Personalize AF network in Institut d’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer in Barcelona, Spain. During his years as part of this network, he hopes to develop a new method to quantify the degree of fibrosis in patients with atrial fibrillation by using MRI images in order to contribute to a better treatment for these patients.
Goals and expectations in PersonalizeAF:
Being a member of the Personalize AF network is stimulating in the sense of being able to work along recognized researchers and learning from them in superb environment and conditions. I expect to develop myself by gaining skills both in my research field and other disciplines related to it. With all of this I hope to make a contribution in the improvement of the treatment of AF patients by using non-invasive techniques. I am looking forward to face the challenges I will come across these years in order to improve professionally and personally, as well as culturally enrich myself, and this is a brilliant opportunity to do so!
