Robert Davis

BSc MSc MBCS CITP

Analysis, design & application development for research projects, design and construction of electronic systems for research, systems for biosignal acquisition, development of analysis software, web page design

My principal skills within the department are:
  • Analysis, design and application development and software testing for research projects
  • Analysis, design and development of analogue and digital electronic systems for research projects
  • Development of specialised equipment and software for biosignal acquisition for research projects
  • Analysis, design and implementation and testing of analysis software for data processing of eye movement and other biosignal research data
  • Design and update of department web site

I have on-going projects in the areas of computer based experiments for cognitive psychology research, eye tracking and biosignal measurement.

My interests are in the areas of:
  • Artificial intelligence, in particular Neural Networks
  • Programming methodology and application development and testing
  • Human Computer Interfacing, particularly involving eye tracking and other biosignal measurements
