Curriculum Vitae

Patricia Ulloa Almendras was born in Concepción, Chile in 1984. She studied Biomedical Engineering at the University of Valparaíso - Chile, receiving her degree in 2008.

In 2010 she became and IPSWat scholarship holder for continuing with her master studies, obtaning her M.Sc. in Water Science in 2012 from the University of Duisburg-Essen - Germany. In 2012 she wrote her master thesis at The Erwin L. Hahn Institute for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, titled "Development and characterization of tissue simulating fluids for MRI".

Since 05/2013 she is a student of the Graduate School for Computing in Medicine and Life Sciences and a research assistant at the Institute of Medical Engineering.
