Lund University, Sweden

Leif Sornmo is Professor at Lund University, Lund, Sweden. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Lund University in 1978 and 1984, respectively. From 1983 to 1995, he was a Research Fellow at the Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University, where he was engaged in research on biomedical signal processing. Since 1990, he has been with the Signal Processing Group, Department of Electrical and Information Technology, Lund University, where he is currently a Professor of biomedical signal processing. His research interests include statistical signal processing, modeling of biomedical signals, methods for analysis of atrial fibrillation, multimodal signal processing in hemodialysis, and power-efficient signal processing in implantable devices.

He has published 120 articles in peer-reviewed journals and some 170+ conference papers. He has authored 17 book chapters and 4 books, including Bioelectrical Signal Processing in Cardiac and Neurological Applications (Elsevier, 2005) with Pablo Laguna as coauthor. His research involves close collaboration with Swedish companies active in biomedical engineering, and has to date resulted in 10 patents.

He is cofounder and responsible for the undergraduate/graduate biomedical engineering program at Lund University which started in 2011. He is Director and founding member of the Center of Integrative Electrocardiology at Lund University (CIEL). He was conference chairman of Computers in Cardiology in 1997, and the International Congress of Electrocardiology in 2010.

He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering and Journal of Electrocardiology, a member of the Editorial Board of Medical and Biological Engineering & Computing, and was an Associate Editor of Computers in Biomedical Research (1997-2000). He has been Guest Editor for several special issues in different journals. Since 2008, he is on the board of directors and secretary of Computing in Cardiology.

He is Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (www.aimbe.org), and Fellow of the Royal Physiographic Society, Sweden.
