Topic 1: Solution of the Inverse Problem using Beamforming (M. Sc. Nawar Habboush)

Magnetocardiography (MCG) is a non-invasive technique that use a group of SQUID sensors (typically 64 sensors) to measure the propagated magnetic field from the heart at the torso surface, it interesting though to find out the source of this magnetic field inside the heart. Therefore, we use the inverse problem methods to estimate the location, orientation and strength of the source signal at the source domain, in this case, the heart. The inverse problem methods are algorithms that use the sensors measured signal as an input and calculate the estimated heart activity as an output.

The aim of this project is to implement the beamforming method as an inverse problem solution using MATLAB and then compare the result with other methods that are already implemented. The students will also need to do a small literature research at the beginning. This project work will take place at university hospital complex in Kiel (UKSH).

Philipp is now "Doc Bulling"

On Monday, 10th of September 2018, Philipp Bulling sucessfully defended his dissertation on speech enhancement for in-car communication systems. His work focused mainly on the control of adaptive feedback cancellation filters (details can be found here). After an excellent talk Philipp gave very good answers to the questions of the committee and at around 11:30 h everythings war over and we ...
