Current activity

Isabel Cristina Muñoz Ortega received her Bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering from Universidad de Antioquia (2012). Her undergraduate work was based on electromyographic signal analysis of respiratory muscles. Since 2012, she works as researcher in signal recording and processing for GIBIC. She also received her Master’s degree from the same University and with her thesis “Assessment of Weaning Indexes based on Muscular Respiratory Activity in Mechanically Ventilated Patients after Cardiovascular Surgery” she won a meritorious mention. Nowadays she is coursing the Doctorate in Electronic Engineering program with emphasis in Biomedical system modeling at Universidad de Antioquia and her research work is focused in modeling of respiratory system.
