Passionate of responsible development and social implications of technology, I have more than 12 years of experience in brain-machine interaction, computational neuroscience, and artificial intelligence. My work is focused on the conception of neurotechnologies that allow symbiotic interaction between human and intelligent machines. This is based on better understanding of neural correlates of cognition, development of artificial intelligent devices capable to adapt to their user's goals, preferences and capabilities, and a user-centered design approach.

Highly interested on the translation of emerging technologies onto applications at service of society, I am the head of the Switzerland Office of the CLAIRE Initiative for excellence in AI. I am also chair of the IEEE group on standards for brain-machine interfacing and executive-in-residence at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy. I am the editor of the IEEE Brain eNewsletter and I am actively involved in outreach activities for the general public on topics related to emerging emerging technologies and their societal impact.

I have a degree on Electronics Engineering from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Cali, Colombia and a PhD in Computational Neuroscience from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) In Switzerland.

News: The CLAIRE network has set up a website to compile existing initiatives (projects, funding calls, hackathons, open datasets or tools, etc) by which AI and emerging technologies are contributing to combat COVID19. You can find the website here
