Prof Ing Kenneth Camilleri

Professor, Systems & Control Engineering

Kenneth P Camilleri graduated in electrical engineering from the University of Malta in 1991 and received the M.Sc. in Signal Processing & Machine Intelligence and Ph.D. in Image Processing & Pattern Recognition in 1994 and 1999, respectively, from the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. He is currently the Head of Department of Systems and Control Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering and Director of the Centre for Biomedical Cybernetics at the University of Malta.

Prof Camilleri has a long track record in research in the area of computer vision and in the analysis of brain signals, publishing over 80 research papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences. His present research work, together with his PhD students and research colleagues span the areas of computer vision for eye-gaze tracking, various applications of thermal image analysis (thermography), sketch and drawing understanding, scene understanding augmented by natural language, ultrasound signal & image processing, electroencephalography (EEG) signal processing, brain-computer interfacing, multi-sensorial gait and motion analysis, stroke patient rehabilitation monitoring and neurorehabilitation.

Prof Camilleri was responsible for setting-up of the Biomedical Engineering Research Laboratory with funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This Laboratory has consolidated several collaborative research initiatives with health and medical scientists, opening the way towards inter-disciplinary research applying technology to medicine and health.

The specific research interests of Professor Camilleri include image analysis and understanding, computer vision, biomedical engineering and brain signal & image analysis applied to the diagnosis of brain diseases and to brain-computer interfacing.

Research Interests: Signal processing, Image processing, Computer vision, Computational intelligence, EEG signal processing, Brain-computer interfacing, Biomedical engineering
