Roberto Llorens graduated from the Universitat Politècnica de València (Valencia, Spain) in 2007 with a major in Telecommunications Engineering. He also earned a Masters in Technology, Communication Systems and Networks in 2011 and got a Doctorate Degree Cum Laude in 2014, with an Extraordinary Doctorate Award. His growing interest in applied science led to his association with the i3B Institute in January 2008, where he started working on virtual reality-based applications to neurorehabilitation after a brain injury. His clinical orientation motivated his association with the Neurorehabilitation Unit of Vithas Hospitals, where he serves as Scientific Coordinator. Since then, he has been working as a bridge between research and clinical practice, leading a stable interdisciplinary research group. The Neurorehabilitation and Brain Research Group of the Universitat Politècnica de València is focused on assessing and promoting the recovery of brain function after an injury, and on examining the underlying mechanisms of different brain processes, using virtual reality and neurophysiological recordings. Roberto combines the coordination of several research projects with teaching and supervising undergraduate thesis projects, master's theses, and PhDs in the field of physical therapy, neuropsychology, occupational therapy, and engineering. Roberto Llorens is a board member of the International Society for Virtual Rehabilitation, and a member of the Sociedad Española de Neurorrehabilitación and the International Brain Injury Association. He is also editor of Games for Health Journal and Frontiers in Psychology and has co-organized different scientific conferences in the field.
