Carolina Mora Lopez
Disruption is coming to the world of diagnostic testing and chronic disease management. The source? High-precision wearable and connected health sensors. These are starting to rival expensive bed-side devices in terms of quality and diagnostic insight. In the past few years imec in Belgium has developed a number of such connected health sensors. Not surprisingly, the development of these connected health sensor platforms requires innovative technology development to ensure reliable, medically relevant operation with real patients.
This is where Carolina Mora Lopez comes in. As R&D Team Leader Circuits for Neural Interfaces at imec, she is well placed to discuss the innovative technologies that are behind these connected health sensors. To do so, she will introduce us to novel circuits that enable multi-modal high-precision data collection and analysis at ultra-low power consumption. Also discussed will be the ongoing work on various diagnostic and chronic disease management applications both in the wearable and connected space as well as in the implantable space.
Lopez received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the KU Leuven, Belgium, in collaboration with imec. She then worked at imec as a researcher and analog designer focused on interfaces for neural-sensing applications before taking on her current position.
