Gernot Müller-Putz is Head of the Institute for Knowledge Discovery, Graz University of Technology, Austria. He is also Head of the Laboratory for Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI Lab) at Graz University of Technology.
In 2004 he received his PhD in electrical engineering ('New Concepts in Brain-Computer Communication Use of Steady-State Somatosensory Evoked Potentials, User Training by Telesupport and Control of Functional Electrical Stimulation') from Graz University of Technology, where, beginning in 2000, he worked on non-invasive electroencephalogram-based (EEG) brain-computer interfacing (BCI) for the control of neuroprosthetic devices. In 2008 he recieved his "venia docendi" for medical informatics ('Towards EEG-based Control of Neuroprosthetic Devices') at the faculty of computer sciende at Graz University of Technology. His research interest include EEG-based neuroprosthesis control, hybrid BCI systems, the human somatosensory system and assistive technology.
