João Tiago Pinto

I hold an integrated masters (bachelor+master) degree in Bioengineering, branch of Biomedical Engineering, focused on a wide array of subjects related to healthcare and engineering, such as sensors and electronics, signal and image processing, computer aided diagnosis, medical instruments, robotics and bionics, mobile programming, and software engineering.

I am currently a MSc Research Fellow at FEUP and Collaborator at INESC-TEC, and I focus mainly in signal and image analysis, combined with machine learning for pattern recognition applications. After studying and working on several projects focused on such technologies for the development and enhancement of medical diagnosis applications, I now work on biometrics, for human identification and authentication, mainly using electrocardiographic signals from off-the-person, highly noisy, unconstrained, and seamless acquisition settings.
