Ricardo Martins (RM) holds a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering and has a background in Biomedical Engineering (MSc), specializing in multimodal signal processing and automation/robotics. RM's research focuses on neuroimaging in cognitive neuroscience and perception models in cognitive robotics, with a primary interest in the intersection of statistics and probability, multivariate signal processing, and computational modeling for multimodal datasets. To expand his expertise, RM has participated in several advanced training programs in computational methods and tools for studying multimodal neuroimaging data. These programs include the ETHZ/UZH Computational Psychiatry Course 2018, Brain Connectivity Workshop 2021, Turku University Brain Imaging Course 2021, Lisbon University Machine Learning School 2019, KCL PET Methodology Course 2019, and Turku University PET Basics Course 2021. Furthermore, RM has developed and utilized his competencies and experiences as a research team member in various national and EU funded projects. These projects focused on computational modeling and pattern recognition (FP7-HANDLE), computer-aided diagnosis tools (FP7-EPILEPSIAE), neuroscience of visual perception (FCT-NeuroHyst), and multimodal neuroimaging biomarkers research for the validation of new therapies in neurological and psychiatric disorders (H2020-AIMS-2-TRIALS, H2020-MarieCurie-ITNNANOSTEM, H2020-STIPED). RM's research outcomes have been published in top-tier international journals and conferences covering various areas such as cognitive neuroscience, neuroimaging, biomarker research, robotics, automation, and machine intelligence. He has also been invited to review articles for various international journals and IEEE conferences.
