Bio: While still on the last year the above studies I applied to a summer internship on M-iti at the NeuroRehabLab, on June 2017, where I worked for 3 months in which the main task was the development of a software that aims to help elderly people that suffered from stroke, focused on the upper limps. After finishing that summer internship I applied for an vacant job where I got hired and where I’m still working.
