Research Overview

My research focuses on developing innovative, disruptive technologies to sense/process physiological signals for therapeutic/assistive devices, disease diagnostics and management, and wearable technology. My particular interests lie in 1) Wireless, wearable, and/or implantable bio-sensors and bio-signal processing for neural interfaces, point-of-care devices, and chronic disease management, 2) Brain signal processing and for brain machine interface and prosthetic devices, 3) mobile/connected healthcare systems.

As an InCHIP affiliate, I would explore problems in bio-sensors and bio-electronic circuits and systems for realizing solutions towards the early prediction, monitoring and treatment of diseases. Specifically, my research directive will be aligned with development of unobtrusive wearable/attachable bio-sensors and implantable devices for closed loop disease control.

Over the past four years at Samsung Research America, Richardson, Texas, I led a research team working on various advanced research projects focusing on analog and RF circuits and system for biomedical devices. In particular, I have been leading the development of a wearable blood pressure sensor using RF radar technology; multi-modal biosensor analog front-end ICs; and brain computer interface devices for an individual’s cognitive state monitoring. I also managed clinical validation projects for bio-impedance analyzer and sleep monitoring sensors with external clinical research groups.
