Dr William Holderbaum


Dr William Holderbaum (IEEE Member) received the M.Sc. degree in automatic control from the University of Reims, Reims, France 1993 and the PhD degree from the University of Lille, Lille, France 1999. He was a research assistant at the University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK (1999-2001). He is currently a Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor in the School of Systems Engineering, University of Reading, Reading, U.K. His research interests are in control theory and modelling with applications. These are mainly focused on hybrid dynamical systems, Geometric Control, Rehabilitation Engineering, Energy reduction, Smart Grid, Multiple Agent Systems, Fuel Cells, Power Generation, Wireless Power Transfer, and Autonomous Vehicle.


Dr Holderbaum, within the SPHERE project, is to conduct data fusion sensors and signal processing from monitoring patient using sensor technology. Such data includes movement, frequency of movement and temperature. In particular the research at the University of Reading will focus on developing new or existing methods in data fusion sensors, from the combination of sensor-level signals.  Based on the calibrated and integrated signals from the individuals movement, design a decision making algorithms for interventions based on both information-gathering as well as health-providing. He will be supervising two research assistants and one PhD student associated with the SPHERE project.
