Signal and Information Processing for Sensing Systems (SigInfo)

Current smart instrumentation using multi-sensors and/or spectrometers provides a wealth of data that requires sophisticated signal and data processing approaches in order to extract the hidden information. In this context, we are interested in analytical instrumentation for the detection of volatile compounds for health and food applications. We are interested in the potential of the volatolome for non-invasive and point of care diagnostics on various body fluids as breath, urine, flatulences, etc.  Our group develops algorithmic solutions for the automatic processing of Gas Sensor Array, Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) and Gas Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) data for metabolomics and food samples.
