Research group description
The mission of the Physiological Signal Analysis Team is to carry out top-level basic, applied and translational research in biomedical engineering. The aim is to develop, apply and evaluate novel biomedical measurement technologies in health and wellbeing. The research focuses on measurement of physiological phenomena associated with:
- cardiovascular system
- respiratory system
- central nervous system and autonomic nervous system
- affective system / emotions
Our research is multi-disciplinary and is carried out in collaboration with hospitals and industry partners in Finland and abroad. We use large clinical materials for method development and validation. Large-scale cohorts, digital biobanks and other emerging digital repositories of health data are increasingly important data sources for our research. Our research addresses future e-health systems where big data analytics combined with sensitive health data offers many opportunities but also challenges concerning, for example, privacy and security.
The research profile is based on linking information technology and medicine, with an aim to utilize methodologies of information engineering, signal and image processing, pattern recognition, biophysics, medical imaging, applied mathematics, simulation, biomedicine and clinical medicine.
