Computational Science

Application of fuzzy-granular computing in identification and characterization of neurological disorders

Melaku Bogale completed his M.Sc degree in physics at New Mexico State University and joined the Computational Science Program at the University of Texas at El Paso in Fall 2009. Melaku successfully passed the qualifying exam and advancing towards his degree under the guidance of Dr. Thompson Sarkodie-Gyan  in the Laboratory for Human Motion Analysis and Neurorehablitation   in the electrical engineering department. His research interest includes application of soft computing algorithms in identification, assessment and classification of neurological disorders. Particularly, he is working on characterization and evaluation of mild traumatic brain injury using information granulation .
