Expertise: Brain-Computer Interfaces, EEG-based Neuroprosthesis control, biosignal processing
Assoc. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Gernot Müller-Putz is head of the Institute for Knowledge Discovery and its associated BCI Lab. He received his MSc in electrical and biomedical engineering in 2000, his PhD in electrical engineering in 2004 and his habilitation and “venia docendi” in medical informatics from Graz University of Technoloy in 2008.
He has gained extensive experience in the field of biosignal analysis, brain-computer interface research, EEG-based neuroprosthesis control, communication with BCI in patients with disorders of consciousness, hybrid BCI systems, the human somatosensory system, and BCI s in assistive technology over the past 14 years. He has also managed several national projects and international projects and is currently partner in 2 EU FP7 projects (BackHome, ABC) and coordinator of the EU project BNCI Horizon 2020. Furthermore, he organized and hosted five international Brain-Computer Interface Conferences over the last 10 years in Graz, currently prepraring the 6th Conference in Sept. 2014. He is also steering board member for the International BCI Meeting, which takes place in the US usually every three years (last time in 2013). He has authored more than 100 peer reviewed publications and more than 100 contributions to conferences.
