My research is based on biomedical signal processing. My main signal of interest is electrical brain activity (EEG) and its analysis for a number of applications, disorders and brain states. Investigations include EEG activity during epilepsy, sleep, mental imagery, resting state and under anesthetic administration. For my analysis I use a number of different processing methodologies, both in the time and frequency domain, with emphasis on techniques that capture connectivity patterns (causality, synchronisation etc).

Monitoring awareness during surgery: a multi-modal approach (AnaeWARE) (Imperial College London, UK, August 2014-2016)

This project builds on my previous research by adding a multi-modal component to monitoring awareness during anaesthesia. This will be achieved though the recording of multi-modal signals during surgery, in addition to EEG activity, and the investigation of the causal  / synchrony relationships between them. 

Funding: This project has received funding from the People Programme (Marie Curie Actions) of the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under REA grant agreement no623767.
