Clara Mosquera-Lopez, Ph.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, School of Medicine


Dr. Mosquera-Lopez is an Assistant Professor in the Artificial Intelligence for Medical Systems Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at OHSU. She received her B.S. in electronics engineering and her M.S. in management of technology from the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana at Medellin (Colombia) in 2007 and 2010, respectively. She earned her Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2015. Her research interests lie at the intersection of biomedical signal processing and artificial intelligence for healthcare applications including digital health, computational biology, data-driven modeling, development of technologies for type 1 diabetes (T1D) management, and analysis of biosensors data. Currently, Dr. Mosquera-Lopez works on the development of novel technologies for solving several glucose prediction problems including short-term hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia as well as nocturnal hypoglycemia in T1D, heart signals analysis, and fall detection and risk estimation using advanced machine learning techniques.
