Biography

 

Dr. Elizabeth Rendon-Morales is a lecturer in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in the Department of Engineering and Design at the University of Sussex. The main area of her research is the design, development and testing of the next generation electronic systems and medical instrumentation. Her areas of expertise include sensors, electronics, robotics and telemetry systems. Within the sensing area, she is leading the development of advanced sensing devices to monitor electrocardiogram -ECG signals on babies during early pregnancy and throughout labour. On the robotics area, she is leading the development of micron level precision instrumentation tools to achieve linearity and repeatability that could contribute to the next generation surgical autonomous robotic systems.

The specific medical biomedical areas She is working care: Bioelectronics, Biological sensing and Biosensors, Cardio-engineering, Cardiovascular systems, Electrophysiology and Medical Robotics, Medical Robotics - Surgery, Medical sensors and devices.

She is a fomer 2016 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions COFUND post-doctoral fellow, held at the University of Sussex, UK where she performed research focussed on the evaluation of new sensors developments based on Electric Potential Sensing technology for applications in electrophysiology.

 

Since 2017 I am leading an outreach program to promote Women Participation in Engineering, I am the leader of the Sussex Women in Engineering Society (WES) and in my role of Athena SWAN chair at the School of Engineering and Informatics, I have been involved in activities to promote gender equality, diversity and to encourage young women to pursue engineering careers.

I was selected as invited speaker to share my research ideas to non-technical audience in events such as Soapbox science 2018 and the Big Bang Fair 2019 to promote young women participation in Science. I have also been involved in media press coverage to communicate my research (i.e. Jan 2019 Stress-free way to listen to your unborn baby’s heartbeat. In Reuters Media press. and Meet Elizabeth).

  1. Stress-free way to listen to your unborn baby’s heartbeat. In Reuters Media press January, 2019 
  2. Leader of a workshop on Medical Robotics at the Big Bang Fair 2019 to promote young women participation in Science
  3. Meet Elizabeth Rendon-Morales – Soapbox science June 2018
  4. Successful Soapbox Science event teaches beachgoers a little more about themselves 
  5. “Spotlight on Dr Elizabeth Rendon Morales” In Sussex Media press January 25, 2017
  6. “Computer Science, Electronics and Robotics workshop. Encouraging young girls studying engineering” In Sussex Media press Mach 21, 2016. 
  7. Sussex Study Experience/Widening Participation: Computer Science Electronics and Robotics workshop, School of Engineering and Informatics. This workshop aims to inspire young students –especially girls- to study engineering and STEM subjects. 2016-2019 Lead tutor of the first
  8. “HeadStart” workshop held at the School of Engineering and Informatics. This workshop aims to inspire young students to study engineering and STEM subjects. July 2017, 2016 and 2015 Participation as engineering tutor.
  9. June 25 2014 & 2015 – Invited talk: Sensors for Health, UCTC Uckfield UK, total reach 300 pupils.
Elizabeth received her BSc degree in Telecommunications Engineering (honors) from National Autonomous University of Mexico, School of Engineering and a MSc degree (honors) in wireless communications from ITAM / Telecom Bretagne, Rennes France in 2005.
She got industrial experience since 2002 at AmericaMovil-AT&T research laboratories to work on the evaluation of wireless technologies.
In 2008, she started her doctoral studies on communications engineering for applications in telemedicine at the Technical University of Catalonia, Barcelona Spain.
