Research Areas

  • Brain-Computer-Interfaces (BCI) and EEG
    BCIs connect the brain to the computer. There are different approaches to achieve this, from electrode array implants, to non-invasive EEG approaches and newer approaches such as functional near infrared spectroscopy.
  • Data analytics and machine learning
    Data collected from sources such as EEG, EKG etc. requires analysis to determine patterns and derive approaches for using the former in an applied context. Here we aim to use a combination of data analytics from statistics (e.g. standard FFT, CCA, TRCA) and machine learning to gain new insights into the data we have collected.
  • Dementia
    Dementia is a group of neurodegenerative conditions often associated with memory impairment. While most forms of dementia cannot be healed, studies such as the FINGER-Study have revealed that targeted changes in lifestyle are able to influence the progression. With a technical background we are aiming to transfer technologies into monitoring and assisting in the treatment of dementias.
  • Rapid prototyping
    Many ideas reach a stage when software is not all it takes. Rapid prototyping of hardware enables us to swiftly implement hardware part of project. We focus to leverage rapid prototyping for production of digital/analog circuitry and additive manufacturing.
