GRADUATE STUDENTS

Oludotun Ode

oode3@gatech.edu
My research interests center around the development of embedded systems and statistical signal processing algorithms for bio-medical applications. Specifically, I am currently working on developing methods for detecting local muscle fatigue during physical exercise.

Caitlin Teague

c.teague@gatech.edu

I am interested in researching medical devices and systems, particularly those used for long-term home monitoring. This research focuses on measuring biological signals and leveraging the results to provide useful clinical data. At-home systems challenge us to minimize intrusiveness to daily activities and limit required patient system knowledge and input.

Nick Bolus

nbolus@gatech.edu

My research interests are manifold but center around the concepts of intelligent design and integration of medical devices at the systems level. I am especially keen on developing technologies to advance the fields of noninvasive diagnostics, rehabilitation, and space medicine.

Md Mobashir Hasan Shandhi

mobashir.shandhi@gatech.edu

My research interest is in the field of biosensing device, e.g., wearable and bioMEMS device. I have worked on implantable neural array for large neuronal mapping. Presently I am working on noninvasive medical devices, sensor fusion, signal processing and machine learning with emphasis on cardiovascular monitoring for patients with heart failure.

Nil Z. Gurel

My research interests include physiological modulation, monitoring, active sensing, bio-inspired circuits and systems. I work on biomedical instrumentation, signal processing, and machine learning with a focus on mood and performance improvement.

Hyeon Ki Jeong

hjeong39@gatech.edu
My research interest lies in studying biosignals, developing non-invasive devices and applying methods to utilize them for clinical purposes.

Beren Semiz

My research interests include designing circuits and systems for sensing biological signals, and finding biomarkers for quantifying the biomedical condition through signal processing techniques. Designing such systems and miniaturizing them to a wearable size helps with health monitoring for both clinical and at-home settings.

Jacob Kimball

jacob.kimball@gatech.edu

My interests focus on learning, automation and noise-reduction algorithms for use in non-invasive wearable devices for physiological monitoring. In particular, I am working towards an algorithm to non-invasively estimate an individual’s blood volume status. 

Jon Zia

jzia@emory.edu
My research interests include machine learning analytics for physiological monitoring and adverse event prediction. Background includes Parkinsonian gait analysis, rehabilitative gaming, on-line machine learning algorithms for device adaptation, and automated cardiac monitoring.
 

Brandi Nevius

bnevius3@gatech.edu
My interests focus predominantly around biomedical product research and development. I am particularly passionate about products that at the very least improve quality of life, if not entirely rehabilitate or cure. I am additionally passionate about devices for early detection of diseases, with the end goal of preventing sickness before it even starts.

Kristy Scott
