I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) working in the Mixed-mode Integrated Circuits and Systems (MICS) Laboratory with Prof. Azita Emami. I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP) in 2008, and my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Caltech in 2010. I am expecting to finish my Ph.D. studies by January 2017.
My research interests include analog and mixed-signal circuits, ultra-low-power systems, and process variation correction to enable the next generation of biomedical and health care applications, specifically in novel implantable and wearable medical devices. During my studies, I have been involved in the design of a Fully Intraocular Epiretinal Prosthesis which is meant for patients suffering from severe vision loss due to retinal degeneration diseases. In late 2013, I started a collaboration with Prof. Mikhail Shapiro to develop minimally-invasive biological interfaces using biophysical methods such as magnetic resonance, ultrasound and infrared light.
I am honored to be the recipient of the PUCP Best Student Award in 2008, the Fulbright Peru Opportunity Grant Scholarship in 2008, the third place winner of the 2013 Broadcom Foundation University Research Competition, and the Caltech Rosen Scholarship in 2014.
