My research interests include biomedical signal processing, applied machine learning, and non-invasive wearable device design. To meet the compelling need for quantitative schemes for assessing disease or injury state, my research (i) proposes novel sensor modalities that can perform continuous and non-invasive health monitoring to provide longitudinal insights regarding a person's health, (ii) develops algorithms to extract clinically useful information from the acoustical and vibrational signals captured through these sensors, and (iii) uses this information to derive digital biomarkers for quantifying human health.
My research is in collaboration with scientists and physicians from Emory University School of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, and Northwestern University.
