Short bio: I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Utrecht in 1986. After that I was a NWO research fellow at MIT for one year after which I became a post-doc at the University of Groningen. In 1989 I was appointed as assistant professor at the Faculty of Computer Science at the University of Twente. After a journey through several computer science research fields such as formal verification techniques for concurrent programs, language technology and neural networks I found my niche in Applied Machine Learning. My current research topics involves a data driven approach to Human Behavior Detection & Understanding and Brain Computer Interfacing.
My teaching activities include, among other things, courses in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Brain Computer Interfacing.

Short Abstract: After introducing the University of Twente and the Research Centre CTIT I will give an overview of our research in Human Media Interaction. At the end I will focus on the research in Brain Computer Interfaces and Touch.
