Mohammad Derawi: Biometric Wireless Electrocardiography

A218, 14:00 15.2.2016

Telemedicine is currently gaining a great attention by many researchers around the world. It has become a future trend of medical care due to the increasing cost of treatment and aging world wide. Several telecommunication approaches have been proposed for transferring medical data between a point of care and a health care institution. In addition, it does not either offer a full mobility where a patient still needs to be attached with wired monitoring devices. In this presentation we will talk about wireless biometric electrocardiography (ECG), a so called 2-lead ECG that transfers heart signals from a patient to a smartphone/tablet for monitoring and storing. Furthermore we also use these data for user-recognition by applying machine learning approaches and stable template creation/comparison algorithms.

Short Biography:
Mohammad Derawi received his diplomas in Computer Science engineering from the Technical University of Denmark where he received both a BSc (2007) and Msc (2009) degree. In addition he received the title as the youngest engineer of Denmark in 2009. Derawi has pursued his PhD in information security at the Norwegian Information Security Laboratory (NISLab), Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Gjvik (Former GUC). Throughout his PhD he was also hired as visiting researcher at the "Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt" (CASED,, Germany for a 1 year period. His  research interest today lies within biometrics with specialization on gait/ecg in mobile devices, e-health technologies, digital fundementals and microprocessors/microcontrollers. Today he holds an Assoicate Professorship within Electronic Engineering.
