University of Split

Abstract: The lecture presents the scientific efforts of the group of engineers and scientists from the Laboratory of Biomechanics and Automatic Control Systems – LaBACS, University of Split, Croatia. The field of our expertise is biomedical engineering, and we are dedicated to find the solutions for various current biomedical engineering problems. The primary goals of our research interests are to develop new, state-of-the-art, cost-effective biomedical and biomechanical measurement systems and to apply them on the human subjects to obtain scientifically significant results. Lecture presents a review of some of our newly developed measurement systems and digital signal processing techniques and algorithms for processing and analysis of measured biomechanical and biomedical signals.

Brief Biography of the Speaker: Tamara Grujic graduated with a B.S. degree in electrical engineering in 1999, and then with a M.S. degree in electrical engineering from University of Split, Croatia in 2003. She graduated in 2006 with a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Since 2000 she has been a faculty member of Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Naval Architecture at the University of Split, Croatia, serving as a research assistant from 2000 to 2007, assistant professor from 2007 to 2011, an associate professor since 2011. Her research interests include signals and systems in biomedical engineering (particularly electromyography), biomechanics (particularly biomechanics of human gait and upper limb), design and development of optical motion tracking systems and algorithms in machine learning. She is author of more than 30 papers published in international journals and conference proceedings.
