Dr. Lobaton received the B.S. degree in mathematics and the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Seattle University in 2004. He completed his Ph.D. in electrical engineering and computer sciences from the University of California, Berkeley in 2009.
He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State University. Dr. Lobaton joined the department in 2011.
His research focuses on the development of pattern recognition, estimation theory, and statistical and topological-data-analysis tools applied to wearable health monitoring, robotics and computer vision. He was awarded the NSF CAREER Award in 2016. Prior to joining NCSU, he was awarded the 2009 Computer Innovation Fellows post-doctoral fellowship award and conducted research in the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was also engaged in research at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs in 2005 and 2009.
