Andrei Iacob
Researcher
  
  
Andrei is a PhD student at the University of Essex. His background is in the field of computer science, having also worked as a software developer for a short while during his degree. His research is focused on Brain-Computer Interfaces and applying those in computer games. More specifically, he is working towards controlling computer games using only brain signals, in view of making games as well as other daily tasks accessible to disabled people especially. He also looks into attention and the changes that happen in the brain when a person is focused on a specific task. That would lead to better game testing methods and thus to better games, and has many applications in the daily life as well (e.g. driving and road safety).
