My research interests include biomedical signal processing, machine learning, and non-invasive wearable device design. My current research projects concentrate on two main areas: human knee modeling and non-invasive cardiovascular monitoring. The goals of our research are: (i) to develop frameworks to extract clinically useful information from physiological signals, and (ii) to use this information in designing non-invasive home monitoring systems for providing continuous tracking and preventing exacerbation in patients' clinical status.
My research is in collaboration with scientists and physicians from Emory University School of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, and Northwestern University.
