Universidade Federal de GoiásBrazil

Marcus Fraga Vieira obtained MSc in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering option, University of São Paulo (1995), Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, option Biomedical Engineering, University of São Paulo (2001), and Post-doc in Biomedical Engineering, Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU). He is currently a Full Professor at the Federal University of Goiás, where he is the Coordinator of the Bioengineering and Biomechanics Laboratory and of the Goiás Network for Research in Health Technologies at the Foundation for Research Support of Goiás (Fapeg). He has experience in Biomedical Engineering and Physical Education, with an emphasis on Bioengineering and Biomechanics, acting on the following topics: computational neuroscience with emphasis on mathematical modeling of spinal CPG and motoneuron modeling; biomechanics (gait, transient tasks, posture) and motor control with emphasis on nonlinear dynamical structure of biomechanical signals, biomedical signal processing. He was Faculty Director / UFG for 8 years, member of the Deliberative Council of Foundation for Research Support of UFG (Funape) and member of the Editorial Council of the UFG Publishing Company. He is on the current board of the Brazilian Society of Biomedical Engineering (SBEB), where he is chairman of the admissions committee, and is an Associate Editor of Research on Biomedical Engineering journal, the official journal of the SBEB. He is an advisor of the Post-Graduate Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering-UFG and the Post-Graduate Program in Health Sciences-UFG, and a collaborator in the Post-Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering-UFU. He is a reviewer for renowned journals such as Journal of Biomechanics, Entropy, Sensors, Journal of Neural Engineering, PeerJ, PlosOne, Gait & Posture, Scientific Reports, Cognition-Technology & Work, among others. Finally, a founder and coordinator of the Bioengineering and Biomechanics Laboratory at UFG, with excellent research infrastructure.
