About me

Alexander von Lühmann. I am an electrical engineer that designs biomedical instrumentation. I am also a data scientist specialized on processing, analysis and classification of biosignals. I hold a Dr. Ing. (PhD), M.Sc. and B.Sc. in these fields. My current focus is on Neurotechnology/Neuroimaging and Brain Computer Interfaces using multimodality and diffuse optics.
