Burke Neurological Institute


Alexandre Barachant was born in Chateauroux, France, in 1985. In 2012, he received his Ph.D. degree in signal processing from the Grenoble University, France. For his Ph.D. thesis at the CEA Grenoble, he developed a robust and adaptive brain computer interface based on self-paced motor imagery. Between 2012 and 2013, he has been a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre National de la Recherche Scienti´Čüque (CNRS) in the GIPSA Laboratory, Grenoble, where he developed a calibration-less P300 brain computer interface.

Since November 2014, he joined Burke to study the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation for rehabilitation. His research interest include statistical signal processing, Machine learning, Riemannian geometry and classification of neurophysiological recordings
