CDE Research Engineers have had a busy few months.

 

 

CDE Research Engineer Marcia Saul attended the BCI conference in USA in May.  As part of the conference she participated in the Brain-Computer Interface Designers Hackathon.  Her team won 1st place at the Hackathon, but this was as a result of 24 hours with no sleep!

 

 

CDE Research engineers Asha Ward and Mark Moseley both took part in the inaugural Assistive Living Technology Symposium at Bournemouth University on 21st May.

 

Both presented their EngD research during the symposium.

 

 

Congratulations to CDE Research Engineer Rahul Dey who has had a journal article in Elsevier's Entertainment Computing published. The article culled from some of the results of his doctorate research can be found here https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1875952117301349
