Uxio Hermida Nunez
Uxio graduated in Biomedical Engineering in 2019 from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. During his undergraduate studies, he did several internships working mostly on cardiac computational modelling. He also had the opportunity to work on his Bachelor's degree final project during seven months in Philips Research Paris - Medisys about numerical modelling the aortic and mitral valves.
Uxio recently graduated from the Healthcare Technologies MSc at King's College London, with special interest in medical image computing, deep learning and cardiac computational modelling.
His research interest is mostly on the combination of artificial intelligence technologies and computational modelling to improve
understanding of cardiovascular disease, as well as improving diagnosis and treatment planning. Those interests have motivated him to pursue a PhD where he will work on an intra-operative planning software for improving congenital cardiac surgery.
