Catalina Tobon Gomez
Dr. Catalina Tobon-Gomez has a Biomedical Engineering background. She obtained her Bachelors degree from Antioquia’s Engineering School, Colombia, in 2005. During 2004, as part of her undergraduate studies, she visited the Bioinstrumentation Laboratory in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for an internship. After graduation, she traveled to Barcelona to join CISTIB as a reseracher on multimodal cardiac imaging analysis. From 2007 to 2009, she took a part time research appointment in a clinical center (CETIR Sant Jordi). In early 2011, she completed a research stay in King’s College London. Thanks to these experiences, she increased her understanding of cardiac MRI acquisition and analysis. In June 2011, she defended her PhD thesis entitled: Three-dimensional Statistical Shape Models for Multimodal Cardiac Image Analysis. After a 9 month research appointment as a post-doctoral reseracher at CISTIB, she joined PhySense in April 2012. Her current reserach is focused on exercise induced inter-individual variation of cardiovascular performance.
