Christoph Guger studied biomedical engineering at the Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md, USA. Then he carried out research work at the Department of Medical Informatics (Professor Pfurtscheller) at Graz University of Technology and received his Ph.D. degree in 1999. The topic of his Ph.D. work was the design of an EEG-based brain-computer interface. This was the first real-time BCI system with continuous feedback. He also developed the real-time analysis with common spatial patterns which is still the fastest and most accurate approach for oscillatory BCIs and developed also a P300 BCI with very high accuracy and speed. In the last years, he worked also with ALS and tetraplegic patients in different countries. He is cofounder of g.tec where he works since 1999. Currently he is principal investigator of several European Union research projects.
