Pedro Gomis

Ccs2014_2  I am Pedro Gomis Roman, a Biomedical Engineer working with B2SLab at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya-Barcelona Tech (UPC). Actually, I work as researcher at Biomedical Research Center (CREB) and as Associated Professor of Informatics and Biomedical Engineering at Automatic Control Department (ESAII) of  UPC. I was Full Professor at the University Simon Bolivar (USB), Venezuela, until 2002. Since 1984 I have worked with the Bioengineering and Biophysics Applied Group (GBBA) at the same University where I taught Biomedical Signals and Systems in post-graduated programs. My research work has also been  done at the St. Bartholomew’s Hospital College, University of London, U.K. and University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, USA.

At B2SLab, we are trying to apply Bioinformatics and Bioengineering, mainly towards cardiovascular research. Our main focus, however, is applied signal processing, machine learning and statistical pattern recognition as diagnostic and monitoring tools in clinical applications.

Teaching

I teach at UPC, at the Master in Biomedical Engineering, where I impart Modelling and Simulation of Biomedical Systems; and at the Degree of Biomedical Engineering, where I teach InformaticsBiomedical Signal ProcessingClinical Engineering, Modelling and Control of Biomedical Systems and New Technologies for Energy and Distribution.

I have also been writing some material for several classes, please check the following:

Publications

You can also check my journal papers at the publications for all the group and on my google scholar website.
