Klaus Gramann holds the chair for Biological Psychology and Neuroergonomics at Technische Universität Berlin and is currently Professor at the school of software at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia. He is an internationally leading researcher in the area of human brain imaging in actively behaving participants and established the Berlin Mobile Brain/Body Imaging Lab which became part of the special infrastructure of the Berlin University Alliance. After studying Psychology in Germany and the Netherlands Prof. Gramann received his Diploma and later his PhD from the RWTH-Aachen. He worked as a Postdoc in Munich before he moved to the Swartz Center for Computational Neuroscience at the University of California San Diego in 2007 where he worked together with Scott Makeig to develop the Mobile Brain/Body Imaging approach. In 2011, he accepted a visiting Professorship at the National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan before he moved to Osnabrück and later to Berlin to accept the chair in 2012. Klaus Gramann received the Borchers Award from the RWTH-Aachen and stipends from the German Academic Exchange Service and the Lienert Foundation as well as a Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg Fellowship. He was Co-Pi on several projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Airforce and Army Research labs and the Australian Research Council (ARC). Klaus Gramann received numerous grants from the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and from the industry for his research in the area of spatial cognition, mobile brain imaging, and the use of electroencephalography combined with virtual reality.
