About me

My name is Eloy Martínez de las Heras, and I am a postdoc researcher with a master's in biomedical engineering. Over the last eleven years, I have been working at Advanced Imaging in the Neuroimmunological Diseases group (ImaginEM, group leader: Dr. Sara Llufriu) in the Hospital Clinic of Barcelona. I have a large experience in MRI data processing and I actively participated in the development and validation of many novel algorithms in the ImaginEM group, such as whole-brain parcellation methods, brain/spinal cord atrophy measurements, brain networks analysis and lesion characterization. Furthermore, I have been involved in more than 35 original journal articles in major technical and clinical journals using distinct MR techniques, such as diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), spectroscopy,
