Andrés Úbeda is assistant professor in the Department of Physics, System Engineering and Signal Theory of the University of Alicante, member of the research group AUROVA (University of Alicante) and regular collaborator with the Brain-Machine Interface Systems Lab at Miguel Hernández University of Elche (Spain). He holds a M.Sc in Industrial Engineering from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (2009) and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (2014). During his Ph.D. he was visiting researcher in the Chair in Non-invasive Brain-Machine Interface at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland (May-Jul 2013). He was also postdoctoral research visitor in the Institute of Neurorehabilitation Systems at the University Medical Center of Göttingen, Germany (Oct 2015-Sep 2016).
His main research is focused on studying neuromuscular mechanisms of motor control and coordination by assessing descending motor pathways during movement execution. Other research topics are centered on the analysis of cortical information in the decoding of motor intentions and their use in motor neurorehabilitation procedures. Additional research interests are human-machine interaction and assistive technologies in the field of neurorobotics, particularly focused on myoelectric and brain-controlled devices.
