I am pursuing end-to-end research in the field of Smart & Connected Health, specializing in Physical Medicine & Rehab based on wearable sensors and data analytic methodologies in order to understand the human movements and the associated neurological, neuromuscular, or muscular skeleton conditions (e.g., stroke, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injuries, and osteoarthritis). With a primary focus on evolution, my research interests lie in 1) designing and implementing novel sensors and remote monitoring systems that are motivated by practical medical needs, 2) constructing appropriate clinical trials, and 3) analyzing the obtained data to quantify patients’ conditions and validate the systems' clinical efficacy.
Some of my current research projects include 1) development of a novel flexible wearable sensing solution for estimating joint-angles, 2) remotely tracking longitudinal changes in movement quality in stroke and traumatic brain injury survivors using wearable sensors, and 3) assessing the severity of motor fluctuations in Parkinsonian patients using wearable sensors.
