PhD student – Science and Technologies Applied to Industrial Engineering
Daniel Álvarez Sánchez-Bayuela was born in 1996 in Toledo (Spain). He obtained his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering in 2018, at University Carlos III (UC3M), as well as a master’s degree in the same discipline in 2020, at International University of Valencia (VIU), where he specialized in medical imaging and instrumentation.
He started his research on the field of microwave imaging for medical applications, collaborating with the University Hospital of Toledo in several European Projects (grants: 830265, 101017098). In 2021, he obtained an industrial fellowship to carry out his PhD entitled “Development of Advanced Image Processing Algorithms for Enhancing Microwave Imaging Capability in Breast Lesion Detection: An Oriented Approach for the New Microwave System MammoWave”, in collaboration with MSOC Nanochemistry, under the supervision of Prof. Ester Vázquez Fernández-Pacheco. Currently, his work is focused on the development of anthropomorphic hydrogels-based phantoms for characterizing an operational microwave imaging system (MammoWave).
