Curriculum vitae

Research Interest

Design and implement novel methodology and advanced signal processing techniques to monitor, process and model the electrical and magnetic activity recorded from the brain for the purpose of diagnosis, differential diagnosis, evaluation of treatment, timely warning and intervention to avert catastrophic state transitions like epileptic seizures. The secondary goal is to interface the developed products with existing devices in biomedical industry used for monitoring and real-time treatment of the respective disorders, diseases and emergencies, for example, vagus nerve stimulators (VNS), deep brain stimulators (DBS), transcranial magnetic stimulators (TMS) and/or other neuromodulation devices based on timely in situ cooling of the brain or in situ administration of medication.
