Synopsis

My research vision is to develop new-generation wearable medical imaging & health monitoring technologies with a miniaturized profile, a lightweight form factor, multi-modal functionality, and high imaging resolution. I exploit advanced engineering approaches including medical electronics, reconfigurable hardware, signal/imaging processing (AI enabled), and wearable materials to realise a sophisticated platform that will enable the creation of a range of wearable imaging and sensing technologies that will offer unprecedented spatial-temporal resolution and patient comfort. These technologies are excepted to lead to wide-reaching applications in multiple sectors including neuroscience, clinical neurology, neuro-rehabilitation, and personalized at-home healthcare.
