Our Principal Research Team
This team brings together individuals with backgrounds in neuroscience, human physiology, biomedical engineering and biomedical science, to plan, coordinate and implement various research projects..
Dr Emanuela Russo
Head, Scientific and Publications
Dr Emanuela Russo joined Neurotech in 2016 as Head of Scientific and Clinical Research. Prior to that, she was Adjunct Professor “Niccolò Cusano” University of Rome. Dr Russo is a cognitive neuroscientist and a clinical psychologist. In her role she oversees the scientific activities and coordinates researches and clinical studies relevant to product’s development and scientific background. She graduated in Clinical Psychology and has a doctorate in Cognitive Psychology and Psychophysiology from the “Sapienza” University of Rome. Her research interests regard the brain correlates of attention and perception as well as the neural patterns underpinning cognitive-emotional states. She is specialized in the brain activity and its utilization as a clinical investigational tool for the evaluation of brain dysfunction. She is focused in the identification of biomarkers within broad categories of disorders (anxiety disorders, depression, ADHD, ASD) and how these indices can be remarkable in the prediction of treatment outcomes and in the development of neuromodulation interventions. In 2012, she received the ‘Best Young Researcher’ award at the IOP Congress in Pisa (Italy). She has held various positions as lecturer and Adjunct Professor since 2008. She has also been a reviewer for a several scientific journals.
Andre is a Biomedical Engineer. He graduated with a degree from the Cork Institute of Technology, Ireland, in 2014. He also completed a Work Internship at the Centre for Bio Medical Cybernetics at the University of Malta, where he worked on projects involving Motion Analysis and Infra-Red Camera Imaging. Prior to joining the Clinical Team at AAT Research, Andre worked as a Qualification Engineer with a large pharmaceutical company. His main area of interest is Orthopaedic and Rehabilitative Technologies and he has been accepted to read a Master’s in the subject at the University of Dundee, Scotland.
Sean Grech is Biomedical Engineer specialising in neurotechnology. He graduated Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Imperial College London; with emphasis on neuroscience, the design of Brain-Machine-Interface (BMI) systems and medical devices, and machine learning. His thesis centred on the development of novel mechanomyography (MMG) sensors for the measurement of muscular activity in the body. Prior to specialisation, Sean graduated with an honours degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Malta. His dissertation demonstrated the use of EMG signals to control a robotic arm in real-time. Sean worked for 2 years at Methode Electronics Malta as a student engineer under their Academy programme before joining AAT Research. He is an active member of IEEE and IPEM.
