Biography

Matej Zajc  is an Associate professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.   He teaches courses at bachelor and masters level in the fields of multimedia communications and ICT. His research fields include technology enhanced learning and applications of ambient intelligence.

Recently, together with his team at University of Ljubljana and University of Primorska, he is active in the area of technology enhanced learning with special attention to tangible interaction and its use in the classroom. This interdisciplinary research was awarded by   Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS) in 2012 as an exceptional research achievement.

In the area of ambient intelligence, together with his team at the University of Ljubljana, he is active in engineering algorithms for mobile and embedded computing. Recently, research activities were devoted to mobile user’s body signals processing needed for new non-clinical healthcare applications. Research was published in international peer-reviewed journals.

As a researcher he leads domestic and European projects in the domain of ICT, technology enhanced learning and multimedia. His scientific carrier includes more than 75 papers in journals and conference proceedings. He co-authored three chapters in scientific books.

Besides his academic carrier, Matej Zajc is also volunteering at IEEE: chair of Signal processing & Circuits and systems Chapter (2014-), member of Center for Leadership Excellence Committee (2013 – 2014) and chair of Slovenia section (2010-2013).
