Dr James Weaver
Graduate Student
School of Biological Sciences

James Weaver received his BSc in Biomedical Engineering and Cybernetics in 2012. His thesis focused on predicting epileptic seizures by analysing EEG data and applying a variety signal processing techniques. His PhD in Computer Science focused on developing a brain computer interface (BCI) that can estimate the emotional state of an individual whilst they listen to emotionally charged music. Through analysis of joint EEG/fMRI recordings, this research attempted to model these emotions so that the BCI system can successfully alter the emotional state by changing the parameters of the musical stimuli presented. James now works for Tessella, a world-class centre for analytics located in Oxford, UK.
