Hi Ernest, tell us what did you study and your previous experience before coming to MJN.
Hello! I have studied biomedical engineering at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and afterward a master’s degree in telecommunications engineering at the Poznan University of Technology in Poland. I have always been interested in ways to apply technology to health, particularly on subjects related to the analysis of electrical signals. Before working at MJN, I worked for a consulting firm in Poland, where I did database projects for important companies in the pharmaceutical sector.
How did you know about our project? How did you enter the team?
I met the project quite casually. For my final master’s project, I designed an algorithm to detect epilepsy seizures that would be integrated into an implantable device. One day, while my father was at his lunch break, he read an article by El Punt Diari in which David appeared receiving a prize. He showed me that article and I contacted MJN to learn about the project. After a couple of conversations, they offered me to join the project and I didn’t hesitate for a second.
What are your tasks at MJN?
My main task is to implement and evaluate the algorithms that measure the risk of epileptic seizures. For this, I use several techniques of signal processing, artificial intelligence, and statistics.
Why do you like it here?
MJN has a great human team that makes it a pleasure to come to work. I am lucky to do things that have always interested me professionally. Also, experiencing how the company is built from scratch is something very interesting. I started working here two years ago and I have been able to live its evolution daily.
The greatest satisfaction of my work is knowing that everything we do can help many people
How do you see your work in 5 years?
With the growth potential of MJN, it’s hard to say. Personally, I would like to help coordinate research and development teams that allow us to achieve technical excellence, not only in epilepsy but also with other neuropathologies.
And on a personal level, how makes you feel to be able to help people with epilepsy?
The greatest satisfaction of my work is knowing that everything we do can help many people who until now had no solution to their problems.
