- Mrs Xiaoqi Xu has brilliantly defended her PhD the 27st of January at ISAE-SUPAERO, Toulouse. We also organized a workshop of some of the jury members on the 26th of January, program below :
Advanced methods for neuroscience data analysis & BCI

  • 2:30pm, Dr Martina Scolamiero, KTH, Algebraic distances and stable invariants for topological data analysis, with applications to microglia morphology description
  • 3pm : Dr Fabien Lotte, INRIA, Addressing within-subject BCI variability with Riemannian classifiers
  • 3:30pm : Pr Moritz Grosse-Wentrup, Univ. Vienna, Brain-Artificial Intelligence Interfaces
  • 4pm : Dr Theodore Papadopoulo, INRIA, Improving BCI classification accuracy using tools from auto-regressive models
  • 4:30pm : Dr Alexandre Gramfort, META, Data augmentation for learning predictive models on EEG

- Honored to have obtained the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HDR) on Sept. 20 2022 from Université de Toulouse thanks to an amazing international jury composed of : Dr Anne-Marie Brouwer (TNO, NL), Dr Franck Mars (CNRS, Nantes), and Pr Adriana Tapus (ENSTA, Paris) as reviewers, Pr Stephen Fairclough (John Moores Univ., Liverpool UK), Pr Robert Jacob (Tufts Univ., MA, USA), Pr Elsa Andrea Kirchner (Duisburg-Essen Univ., DE), Dr Fabien Lotte (INRIA, Bordeaux) and Dr Celia Martinie (Univ. Toulouse) as examiners, and last but not least, my mentor Pr Frédéric Dehais !

- Check out our publicly available database ! COG-BCI database : A multi-session and multi-task EEG cognitive dataset for passive brain-computer interfaces

- Glad to have started the EPIIC project (funded by ANR) on Human-Robot Interaction in collaboration with Dr Alami and Dr Clodic from the RIS team at LAAS, CNRS, with Mathias Rihet as doctoral student.
