He is the director of the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) Laboratory at FIU. Dr. Barreto’s academic background is originally in electrical engineering: B.S degree from UNAM, Mexico, 1987, M.S. degree from FIU, 1989, and Ph.D. degree from The University of Florida, Gainesville, 1993. Since his doctoral dissertation research, Dr. Barreto’s work has applied DSP to the manipulation of biosignals, such as the electroencephalogram (EEG) and the electromyogram (EMG). As a faculty member at FIU, Dr. Barreto has sought the application of digital signal and image processing techniques for the development of devices and systems that may facilitate human-computer interaction. Within the overall HCI area, Dr. Barreto is also interested in the improvements that may be brought about by real-time affective assessment of the computer user.
