Ralph Gregor Andrzejak is head of the nonlinear signal analysis group at our department. He was born in Germany (1970) and studied physics at the University Bonn, Germany. He wrote his physics Diploma (1997) and PhD thesis in physics (2001). During these theses he was member of the Neurophysics group of K. Lehnertz and C.E. Elger (Department of Physics and Department of Epileptology, University Bonn, Germany). During his PhD he spent a research stay at the Neurodynamics research group of S.J. Schiff at the George Mason University, Fairfax, USA (1999). After his PhD he carried out a first postdoc with the Complex Systems research group of P. Grassberger at the Research Centre Jülich, Germany (2002-2004). Awarded with a Feodor Lynen-fellowship from the German Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation, he carried out a second postdoc with the Computational Neuroscience group headed by G. Deco (2005-2006) at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. Subsequently, he successfully carried out a Ramón y Cajal tenure-track appointment at this Department (2007-2011). Since 2011, he is an associate professor at the Department of Information and Communication Technologies, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. A total of 56 publications of Ralph G. Andrzejak are indexed in the ISI Web of Science (including 1 article in press pending to be listed).
