João Rodrigues is a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering under the Nova Innovation for Health (NI4H) program at Libphys-UNL and in partnership with Volkswagen Autoeuropa. His project has the main purpose of designing novel algorithms to study the information from biosignals gathered with wearable sensors and extract indicators, such as events and patterns, that can explain the occupational exposure of workers in several working scenarios. As a visiting student at the University of Riverside, California, João will have the opportunity to work with Prof. Eamonn Keogh and other specialists in time series data mining, which will expand his knowledge to improve the current algorithms, especially in the symbolic domain.
