Herbert Buchner joined the Cambridge University Department of Engineering in 2013. His main areas of research are in adaptive signal processing, machine learning, computational statistics, and their applications in science and engineering, such as human-machine interfaces in telecommunications, multimedia, and biomedical applications. For several years, he has also been a consultant to various companies in the telecommunications, IT, automotive, biomedical, and chemical industry, and he has been lecturing various classes in his field. He has been involved in start-up ventures in Berlin and Cambridge. Additionally, since 2012 he has been involved with the newly established Berlin campus of the German University Cairo in Berlin, Germany, as an associate professor (part time) for statistical signal processing.

He received the Dipl.-Ing. (FH), Dipl.-Ing. Univ., and Dr.-Ing. degrees from the University of Applied Sciences, Regensburg and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, respectively, in Electrical Engineering (communications engineering and signal processing). In 1995, he was a visiting researcher at the Colorado Optoelectronic Computing Systems Center (OCS), Boulder/Ft. Collins, Colorado, USA, where he worked in the field of microwave technology. From 1996 to 1997 he did research at the Cyber Space Labs (former Human Interface Labs) of the R&D division of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone corp. (NTT), Tokyo, Japan, working on adaptive filtering for teleconferencing. In 1997/1998 he was with the Driver Information systems dept. of Siemens Automotive (Development of satellite based auto navigation systems) in Regensburg, Germany. From 2000-2006 he was with the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, first as a regular member of the research staff, since 2003 on an assistant position. In 2007 he joined Deutsche Telekom Laboratories in Berlin as a senior research scientist for statistical signal processing where he developed novel audio and multitouch interfaces. At Technical University Berlin he was also a research fellow in the Machine Learning group extending his work in the field of machine learning, statistical data analysis, and to biomedical applications.

Dr. Buchner has authored or co-authored over 100 book chapters, journal articles, and conference papers in his field, and he holds more than 20 patents in several countries. He is member of the IEEE, EURASIP, the Audio Engineering Society, and the Acoustical Society of America. He received the 2006 IEEE Signal Processing Society Young Author Best Paper Award, the VDI award in 1998 from the Verein Deutscher Ingenieure for one of his diploma theses, and he is the author or co-author of four best conference paper awards.
