Biographical Information

Laura Rueda is a master's student in the Neural Engineering Group at Trinity College Dublin. She graduated from Universidad del Norte in 2008 with a Bachelor in Electronics Engineering. After graduation, she continued working at UniNorte in the research group in Robotics and Intelligent Systems directed by Dr. Eric Vallejo, where she designed an algorithm for automation of white blood cells count in bone marrow smears using digital image processing and neural networks for classification. She further studied the 1st year of the Common European MAster’s CoUrse in Biomedical Engineering (CEMACUBE) at Ghent University in Ghent, Belgium. During summer of 2011, she worked in the Cognitive Neurobiology Group of Humboldt University of Berlin under Prof. Dr. York Winter's supervision. Currently, she is doing the 2nd year of the CEMACUBE program at TCD and she is working on her thesis titled: "Quantitative EEG analysis of patients with anoxic brain injury".
