About Sebastians’s Research in Eternity

Sebastian is located at Eindhoven university of Technology (TU/e). His research, “Behavioural EMI Risk-based testing of medical devices”, is about simulating electromagnetic interference (EMI) scenarios in-situ, for medical devices. The project focuses to improve the testing of medical devices before they are deployed, as it is mandatory according to the current European product rules, which demand a risk-based approach on EMI. His purpose is to aid the faster deployment of new technology in the medical field.
