Cristian has a background in Computer Science (M.Sc.) and Broadband Networks (M.Sc.), with a specialisation in scheduling algorithms applied to wireless vehicular networks (Ph.D.). His research interests centre around developing algorithms and wearable electronic monitoring systems for automated decision making and clinical support. These digital systems serve two main purposes: predicting clinical deterioration in hospitalised patients and enabling self-management of chronic conditions, like hypertensive pregnancies, through home monitoring. To achieve these goals, the systems utilise mobile apps, incorporate automated decision-making capabilities, and leverage real-time machine learning techniques.
