Draws energy from processing, analysing and presenting data. Always in the mood for a board game.

Kris Cuppens graduated in 2007 as Industrial Engineer option electronics-ICT at the Katholieke Hogeschool Limburg.

After his studies, he joined the Mobilab research group at the then Katholieke hogeschool Kempen (the current Thomas More Hogeschool). Here he worked on a research project on the detection of epileptic seizures with video images and accelerometers.

In 2012, he received his PhD from the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at KU Leuven where he conducted research on this topic in collaboration with Thomas More hogeschool. He worked mainly on processing and analyzing biomedical signals and images and applying machine learning techniques to them.

Within Mobilab & Care, he prefers processing and analyzing data. This can be data from patients, biomedical signals or 3D scans.

He is currently working on BreatheBox. In the BreatheBox project, we support respiratory therapists and coaches with tools for teaching breathing exercises to their patients. In doing so, Kris mainly takes care of reading, visualizing and analyzing (breathing) signals and then converts all that data into a demo app.
