Maria Rubega, PhD
University of Padova, Padova, Italy

Maria Rubega is Assistant Professor in Bioengineering at the Department of Neuroscience of the University of Padova (Italy). From April 2017 to April 2019, she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Functional Brain Mapping Lab at the Department of Basic Neurosciences at the University of Geneva (Geneva, Switzerland), where she explored the area of brain communications pathways by combining diffusion based quantitative structural connectivity and EEG source imaging to physiological and epileptic networks. She received her PhD in February 2017 from the Department of Information Engineering at the University of Padova. As a PhD student, her dissertation focus was on deepening and broadening the knowledge of electroencephalography signal alteration before and during hypoglycemia. For this work, she collaborated with a Danish start-up: UNEEG medical and she received the award Young Researcher at the V National Congress of Bioengineering in Naples in June 2016.
