Last July, I moved back to my homeland, Portugal, after 11 years of living in the Netherlands. But that was not the only change. For 10 years I performed research on the design and implementation of digital health solutions for the prevention, monitoring, and treatment of chronic conditions. Recently I started two motivating challenges. The first is as Chief Customer Officer at Fibion Oy, a small enterprise with the mission of supporting better research on physical activity with less hassle. In my second challenge, I am a researcher and EU project manager at Shine 2Europe collaborating on projects mostly related to social innovation. In this case, the challenge is not so much in the role but in the topic of focus.
My role in a team as Biomedical Engineer is to bridge healthcare/social needs with the development of technology.
Emigration + two new jobs + two children under 5 = never a dull moment.
