Editor(s)-in-Chief Biography

Dr. N. Sriraam received his B.E. (ECE) from National Engineering College, in 1996 and M. Tech. (Biomedical Engg.) with first class and Distinction from MIT, Manipal, India in 2000. He secured the University First Rank and was awarded the gold medal in M.Tech. He was associated with Ge Medical Systems (X-ray division) Pune for a year. Later joined at Faculty of Information Technology at Multimedia University, Malaysia in the year 2001 as a Lecturer and continued until January 2007. He completed his PhD in the area of biosignal processing under the guidance of Dr C.Eswaran, Professor of IT ,Multimedia University (former Professor, Electrical Engg Dept,IIT Chennai) in 2007. His PhD topic was: Neural Network Based Lossless and Quality Controlled Schemes with Error Modeling for the Compression of Electroencephalography (EEG) Signal.

Dr. Sriraam has guided four M.S Students by research while working at Multimedia University in the area of Bioinformatics and Biomedical Signal Processing. He also received the Malaysian Government Research Grant of USD 120K for carrying out his research on Multimedia data compression for Telemedicine applications and also from Multimedia University as internal funding. He has also involved in INTEL Malaysia project related to optimizing the algorithms for data storage facility.

From Feb 2007 to October 2012, he was associated with Biomedical Department of SSN College of Engineering, Chennai as Professor and Head. He received the internal grant of 650K INR for carrying out project on Knowledge based decision support system for detecting fetal pathologies and also received student project funding of 200K INR to carry out the project in the area of point of healthcare system. Recently his team Won the All India Level Sahajanand Laser Technology Sushrutha Innovation Award for the innovation" A Cost Effective Prototype for Long Term Blood Glucose Monitoring Using Non Invasive Adaptable Laser Technique,March 2012 (award was supported by Department of Science and technology of India, Sahajanand laser technology,Gujarat and National Biomedical Society of India) and received cash prize of 90K.

He has published 45 International Journals including five papers in IEEE Transactions and 53 International Conferences. He has visited countries like Singapore, Thailand, France, Germany, Malta (Europe), Japan for his international conference presentation. He is the editor-in-chief of two Journals: International Journal of Biomedical and Clinical Engineering (IJBCE) published by IGI Global Pennsylvania,USA and International Journal of Biomedical Signal Processing (IJBSP) and also reviewing panel member for the Journals such as IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and Communications, IEE Electronic letters, Elsevier publications such as Digital Signal Processing, Computers in Biology and Medicine, Expert Systems, Medical Informatics, Neurocomputing, Journal of Medical Systems.
