Brief Bio
Mireya Fernández Chimeno received a degree in Telecommunications Engineering, specialization in Electronics from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC), Spain, in 1990 and a PhD in Telecommunications Engineering in 1996 from the same University. Since 1998. She is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electronic Engineering of the UPC. She belongs to the Biomedical and Electronic Instrumentation Group, where he develops her research. She also belongs to GCEM, Grup of Electromagnetic Compatibility of the UPC from which she is the Quality Manager, and to the CREB, Center for Research of Biomedical Engineering of the UPC, both centers are part of the TECNIO network of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Mireya is also a member of the advisory board of Health and Sport Lab (, a spin-off created by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Her fields of research interest are the design and development of biomedical instrumentation for medical and non-medical environments and the instrumentation design for electromagnetic compatibility measurements, focused on the development of near-field probes for medical, automotive and aerospace scenarios and on the evaluation of uncertainty of measurement methods. Mireya was a visiting researcher at the Department of Health Sciences, University of York, United Kingdom (2003), and deputy director of teaching laboratories at the School of Telecommunications Engineering (ETSETB), UPC (1996-2000). She was also councilor of the town of Gelida, Barcelona (2007 - 2011), where she was responsible for the fields of new technologies and citizen participation. She is co-author of more than 100 scientific and academic publications (articles, conference communications and books) and 7 patents. She is a member of the organizing committee of EMC Europe 2006 Barcelona, and EMC Europe 2019 Barcelona, Program Chair of Biodevices 2013, member of the Biodevices / Biostec program committee since 2013 and PhyCS since 2017.


The Special Session will feature paper presentations and discussions covering various aspects of the risk-based approach for EMI management in the medical-technology industry. We invite submissions on topics such as medical devices risk assessment methodologies, EMI hazard identification, risk mitigation strategies, regulatory considerations, case studies, and best practices. Participants will have the opportunity to share their research, experiences, and insights, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and advancing the field.
