Dr Andrey Temko
Research Fellow

Andrey's PhD work focused on speech and audio processing, developing smart-room context-awareness systems using acoustic agents. In the two years following, (2006-2007) he lead the area by co-organising two international evaluation campaigns and leading the tasks of acoustic event detection and classification. In 2008, he moved from telecommunication to biomedical engineering to join Neonatal Brain Research Group in University College Cork. Here he has developed and patented a neonatal seizure detection algorithm which is currently undergoing European multi-centre clinical trial towards its regulatory approval and clinical adoption. Andrey's research interests span the area of machine learning for signal processing, starting with exploratory analysis and feature engineering, leading to predictive modelling and validation. Current applications concern biomedical signal processing and classification (EEG, ECG, other physiological signals), assist healthcare professionals in clinical decision making by developing decision support tools for better diagnostics and prognostics.
