Dr Marco Alban Paccha 

Year started




Fellow Type

Postdoctoral By-Fellows,

Marco received his BEng in Mechatronics Engineering (2013) from the Armed Forces University – ESPE (Quito, Ecuador) and his MEng in Micro/Nano Systems (2018) from Korea University (Seoul, Korea), where he worked on OLED material optimization. He then moved to the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (Daejeon, Korea), where he received his PhD in Electrical Engineering (2022) advised by Prof. Seunghyup Yoo.

Marco’s doctoral research was on the use of thin dry electrodes and wearable electronics for cardiovascular sensing. Currently, Marco is doing postdoctoral research at the University of Cambridge in the area of wearable sensors and health informatics as part of the ADVANTAGE research consortium, part of the UK Advanced Pain Discovery Platform for monitoring and treatment of pain. Collaborating between the Bioelectronics Group at the Department of Engineering and the Pain Group at the Department of Medicine, he aims to develop wearable and ML-powered sensor solutions to detect, classify, and predict pain episodes in humans.
