Over mij

My research is interdisciplinary, which applies and develops physiological signal, multi-modal sensing and physiological system modeling techniques in the clinical field. My main research interest is about remote monitoring of individual’s vital signs and movement in the daily life for personalized disease prevention and management, especially enthusiastic in using my expertise to tackle challenges about the daily monitoring of physiological responses to dynamic physical activities.

My past and on-going research projects are listed below:

  • Recovery monitoring of hip-fracture patients using wearable movement sensors (Up&Go project).
  • Early detection of clinical adverse events in postoperative patients using remote monitoring techniques (MoViSign and MoViSupport projects).
  • Track elderly people's resilience using digital hand grip strength (Reshape project).
  • Daily monitoring of gait disorder symptoms (freezing of gait) in people with Parkinson's disease (BrainWave project).
  • Daily monitoring of seizures in people with epilepsy (BrainWave project).

I take the supervisor role of three PhD candidates (daily supervisor for two PhD candidates). I have supervised over 30 master/bachelor students in the filed of biomedical engineering, technical medicine, electrical engineering, embedded system, neuroscience, etc.

I am the committee member of Dutch Electrical Engineering council (EE-NL) which creates the visibility of EE in the Netherlands, discusses topics which involve, require or affect Electrical Engineering research and education on the national level, coordinates initiatives undertaken by the Dutch technical-university faculties of Electrical Engineering in the areas of research, education and valorization, and strengthens the Dutch Electrical Engineering community.

I am the committee member of educational quality committee for Electrical Engineering program at UT to control and give suggestions to improve the education quality for new-generation electrical engineer training.

I am the committee member of UT-EEMCS ethical committee where we review the ethical protocol of research projects involving human participants to ensure that the research projects agree with local and international ethical guidelines.

My research is to develop and use the techniques of wearable sensing, signal analysis,  and dynamic system modelling to solve practical clinical and technical problems during daily remote vital-sign and movement monitoring. Interesting applications include but not limited to the monitoring of individual's life style, individuals with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy.
