I work as an Electrical and Computer Science researcher, where I focus on novel sensing techniques and data analysis methods to address longstanding problems in healthcare and smart home systems. My ambition is to develop and study sensing techniques with a focus on mental and chronic diseases, which are impacting millions of lives worldwide in the 21st century. I strive to improve healthcare through predictive and preventive medicine that is informed by my research. I am currently attending the first year of the Ph.D. program in ECE at the University of California, San Diego, USA, specializing in medical devices and system.
