Biomedical Statistics and Multimodal Signal Processing

Assistant Prof. Dr. Ing Muthuraman Muthuraman

Muthuraman Muthuraman was born in Chennai, India, in 1980. He received the B.E. degree in electronics and communication engineering from the University of Madras, Madras, India, in 2002, and the MS in digital communications in Christian Albrecht’s University, Kiel, Germany in 2006. Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from the Technical faculty and Department of Neurology of Christian Albrecht’s University, Kiel, Germany, in 2010. In 2010, he joined the Department of Neurology, University of Kiel, as a Post-doc, and in 2013 became a senior Post-doc. Since December 2016, he has been with the Department of Neurology, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, where he is an Assistant Professor, and the head of the department biomedical statistics and multimodal signal processing unit. His current research interests include mathematical methods for time series analysis and source analysis on oscillatory signals, function of oscillatory activity in central motor systems, biomedical statistics, connectivity analyses, multimodal signal processing and analyses of EEG, MEG, fMRI and EMG, structural network analyses on anatomical MRI and DTI, machine learning and deep learning.
