Ignacio brings to Galgo Medical extensive experience in computational modelling of the vascular system and minimally invasive endovascular treatment. He lead the development of the Fast Virtual Stenting method. He leads the Vascular Unit, which develops software applications for the medical device industry.
During his Doctoral studies he contributed in the HeMoLab group at Laboratório Nacional de Computação Científica - LNCC/MCT, RJ - Brazil (National Laboratory for Scientific Computation). He led a research team within CISTIB at UPF focused on Image-Based Technologies in Vascular Modelling and Hemodynamics. Up to date, he authored and co-autored more than 20 publications in top journals and more than 50 papers in international conferences in his field of research, in collaboration with multidisciplinary research teams (engineers, medical doctors, physicists, software developers). He been involved in a number of public funded projects, such as @neurIST (FP6-ICT-3-027703), euHeart (FP7-ICT-2007-1-224495), MSV (FP7-ICT-2009-4-248032), VPH-SHARE (FP7-ICT-2009-6-269978), cvREMOD and previously CDTEAM. His current research and development interests include all aspects of medical image processing, morphology characterization, virtual medical device modelling, and medical software development.
Ignacio received his degree in Software Engineering (2003) at the Universidad Nacional del Centro de la Provincia de Buenos Aires, Tandil, Buenos Aires, Argentina (UNICEN) and his PhD in Computational Modelling (2007) at LNCC/MCT, Petrópolis, RJ - Brazil.
