Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering

Karim G. Oweiss received his Ph.D. degree (2002) in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Michigan (UM), Ann Arbor. He is currently a Pre-eminent Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering (Hebert Wertheim College of Engineering) and Neuroscience (McKnight Brain Institute) at the University of Florida. He is a senior member of the IEEE. He received the excellence in Neural Engineering award from NSF in 2001, and is the editor of the book: Statistical Signal Processing for Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (2010). His research interests are in the study the neural mechanisms of sensorimotor integration and in the engineering clinically viable brain machine interfaces seeking to restore, augment, or repair damaged neurological function.
