ECE professor Jose “Pepe” Luis Contreras-Vidal, director of the University of Houston’s Laboratory for Noninvasive Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) Systems at the Cullen College of Engineering, has been appointed associate editor of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Transactions on Human-Machine Systems.

Pepe is widely considered one of the world's leading researchers in the field of noninvasive brain-machine interfaces, having been featured in national and international media for his thought-controlled robotic exoskeleton which can be used to help paralyzed patients regain their mobility. Now, Pepe will sit on the board of associate editors for the prestigious IEEE publication, IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems.

The scope of the IEEE Transactions on Human-Machine Systems includes the fields of human machine systems. It covers human systems and human organizational interactions including cognitive ergonomics, system test and evaluation, and human information processing concerns in systems and organizations.
