Expertise: biomedical signal processing, sleep disorders, neural engineering, machine learning, signal and image processing
Roberto Hornero is Full Professor in the Department of Signal Theory and Communications at University of Valladolid (Spain) and Director of the Biomedical Engineering Group at the University of Valladolid. He is also member of the Biomedical Research Networking Center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN, Ministry of Health, Spain). He has opened different research lines in the field of biomedical signal processing: automatic processing of pulse oximetry and overnight polysomnography signals to help in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea, EEG and MEG analysis to help in the diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases, retinal image analysis to automatically detect lesions associated with Diabetic Retinopathy, and the development of Brain Computer Interface systems to improve the quality of life of disabled people. He is fellow of the European Alliance of Medical and Biological Engineering and Science (EAMBES), Senior Member of IEEE Society for Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMBS) and Vice-President of the Spanish Biomedical Engineering Society (SEIB).
