My name is Ted Burke (aka username batchloaf). I’m a lecturer in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT Kevin Street) in Ireland. I teach a range of subjects including robotics, engineering computing, RoboSumo and biomedical engineering.
My primary research interests are signal processing (especially biomedical signals) and human-machine interfaces. I’m also interested in robotics, embedded systems, music technology and toys. I’m a founding member of the tPOT research group, which focuses on what we call ‘People Oriented Technology’ – technology that interacts well with humans.
This blog is really just a scrapbook for bits and pieces of code, notes, ideas, etc that crop up in my research and teaching. I created it for ad hocumentation.
