- I am a biomedical engineer by training (first degree and PhD), and I've
kept working on and off in the area for many years, while in the meantime learning (and doing research in) a
variety of other technologies, including neural networks, machine
vision, genetic algorithms, genetic programming, particle swarm
optimisers, and generally artificial intelligence.
- Since approximately
2004, with the creation of the Essex Brain
Computer Interfaces Laboratory, which I co-founded, BCI and neural engineering have become more and more central in my research.
- See the results of two recent EPSRC projects involving BCI: Analogue Evolutionary Brain-computer
Interfaces and Gobal
engagement with NASA JPL and ESA in Robotics, Brain Computer
Interfaces, and Secure Adaptive Systems for Space Applications -
- I'm a member of the Ageing and Assisted Living Network of the University of Essex (for more information about activities and members, see our flyer).
- Here are my biomedical engineering publications. A bigger list including most of my publications (approximately 310, over 280 of which are downloadable) is available here. Some of the technical reports I have co-authored are also available.
- My curriculum vitae (as of February 2014) in PDF format.
- I am an advisory board member of the Evolutionary
Computation Journal published by MIT Press. I am was an associate editor of the Journal
of Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines published by Springer, of the Applied Soft Computing Journal published by Elsevier and of Swarm
published by Springer, until between late 2013 and early 2014 when I
decided to resign from these roles as they were eating too much into my
research time. Until 2013, I was also a member of the executive
committee of the Special Interest
Group on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation
(SigEVO) of the Association for
Computing Machinery (ACM), but I asked not to be considered for re-election for the same reasons.
- I am a member of the steering committee for the Evo* conference.
- I'm in Prof
Palsberg's list of the 600 computer scientists with the highest
H-index (widely used index of research impact) ever, in the list
of most prolific authors in DBLP (one of the largest computer
- I'm one of the top three authors in the genetic
programming bibliography (first for number of co-authored
publications, third in weighted order).
