Personal Information:

Enrique Alvarez Lacalle. Degree in Physics (1998) for the University of Barcelona (UB) obtaining the excellence prize for the degree studies. Ph.D. in advanced Physics also in the UB (2004) with the thesis: Interfacial instabilities in Hele-Show flaws: theory and experiments. I got an state competitive fellowship FI to pursue the Ph.D. studies (1999-2002) together with a university fellowship (2003). I have been post-doctoral-fellow with the European Network PHYNECS at the Weizmann Institute of Science (2004-2006) in Israel and selected by the state competition board for a post-doctoral fellowship Juan de la Cierva in Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech UPC (2006-2009) to work on cardiac arrhythmias.

Presently associate professor in the UPC, formally attached to the Air Navigation and Telecommunication Engineering School (EETAC), with teaching in biophysics in the degree of Physics Engineering and in Computational Biology in both Physics Engineering and System Biology.

Research activity

More than 40 publications in refereed journals (h-index 16), two book chapters, one patent and around 50 publications in conferences with participation in more than 10 research projects. I have worked on very interdisciplinary research topics, such as physics of fluids and engineering, biophysics, medicine and mathematical linguistics. I have also done research residences in very different institutions: Universities of Essen, Bristol, Gevene, Zaragoza, and Northridge-Los Angeles. I have also stayed at PTB in Berlin. Presently, member of BIOCOMSC, doing research on cardiac diseases and tracking COVID19 lethality, infectious mobility and risk behavior in Spain and Europe for the European Commission.
