Biography

Tomas is Senior Lecturer in Electronic Engineering at Maynooth University (since 1999) where he leads the Biomedical Engineering Research Group. Dr. Ward holds B.E. (Electronic Engineering), M.Eng.Sc. (Rehabilitation Engineering) and Ph.D (Biomedical Engineering) degrees from University College, Dublin. His academic research includes the application of neurotechnology for neurorehabilitation particularly in stroke and signal processing for connected health. Dr Ward serves on the Engineering Sciences committee of the Royal Irish Academy and previously on the Irish Research Council He is a Senior Member of the IEEE since 2011. Dr Ward has authored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications and has supervised to completion 20 research students (12 PhD). He has licensed a range of technologies to industry since 2009 including sensor streaming technologies for e-health, over the air programming and mobile health applications. In 2014 Dr Ward took a role as VP of Engineering (and later COO) at Syntrogi Inc - a San Diego neurotechnology company developing brain state decoding middleware for neural interfacing applications.
