Professor David Simpson

Prof of Biomedical Signal Processing

Research interests

  • His research interests are in biomedical signal processing with applications in neurophysiology and cardio-vascular and cerebro-vascular control. Specific topics are:
  • Blood flow control in the brain (how does the brain regulate is own blood supply and how to detect impairment of this function).
  • Auditory evoked potentials (methods to detect the small electrical responses of the brain to auditory stimulation for the assessment of various hearing disorders).

David Simpson is a biomedical engineer and Professor of Biomedical Signal Processing. His research and teaching focus on the application of engineering techniques in a medical context. He aims to develop new diagnostic and patient monitoring methods using computational data analysis (signal processing) techniques for the benefit of patients and other users. His current main areas of interest are in the control of blood flow to the brain and the electrical response (in EEG signals) of the brain to auditory stimulation. This work is based on collaborations with a range of clinical partners. In his teaching he aims to enable future engineers to solve real-world problems in medical applications of engineering, and beyond.
