I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Virginia in 2013, where I focused on extracting relevant information and actionable knowledge from wearable sensors for medical research. Upon completion of my Ph.D. degree, I then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery at Imperial College London. Since 2016, I have been a faculty member at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I hold a joint position in the Department of Biostatistics and the Department of Internal Medicine.
My primary research interests lie in translating fundamental research in wearable sensing technologies into medical research, clinical practice and general health and wellness management with real-world impact via system design, targeted human subject studies and large clinical trials. My primary research focus is to provide high fidelity, objective, and quantitative assessment for clinical research. With a background in Electrical Engineering and specializing in wearable sensors, signal processing, and machine learning, I provide unique perspectives and expertise when designing clinical trials for studying human physiology.
