PhD Thesis

“Sensor data fusion for human stress assessment”

Activation of the Autonomic Nervous System is a well-known response from the Body to Threat and Challenge. This leads to moderate changes in different physiological variables (e.g. heart rate, electrodermal activity, etc.) that can be monitored non-invasively.
This PhD thesis is about characterizing them in ambulatory conditions. Methods and algorithms will thus be proposed in order to assess different stress levels on healthy individuals, in a real-life context.
This is a transdisciplinary research project that covers Signal Processing and Machine Learning, as well as Cognitive Sciences.
