Research Areas:

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) — Previously I have developed projects applying DSP to Radar, Computerized Numerical Control, etc.

Currently I have a particular focus on Biomedical Signal Processing, with especial interest devoted to applications in the Human-Computer Interaction and Assistive Technology areas.

Specific Projects of current interest:

  • Eye Gaze Tracking (EGT) / Electromyogram (EMG) cursor control for individuals with motor disabilities
  • Customized computer image pre-compensation for individuals with severe visual aberrations
  • Spatial (3D) sound technology to facilitate computer interaction of individuals with visual impairments
  • Real-time measurement and processing of physiological signals (Galvanic Skin Response, Blood Volume Pulse, Skin Temperature, Pupil Diameter, etc.) for the assessment of the affective state of computer users
