"Research is an area where to think outside the box is part of everyday life, or simply creativity is encouraged. Many times those instances of creativity lead to awesome discoveries that aid improvements in the lives of people. This is why I got involved with research. I seek to be mentored and to learn how to couple creativity with engineering to offer improvements in electronic technology. "

Research Description

Development of Flexible Biosensor suitable for Wireless ECG/EEG System

My research project involves creating and improving upon the design of a flexible, non-contact sensor to detect the electrical activity of the heart and brain. The traditional electrocardiogram (ECG) requires 12-15 electrodes attached to the skin surrounding the heart via a conducting gel that can cause irritation to the site over time. Similarly, the electroencephalogram (EEG) requires 10-20 electrodes attached to various sites around the scalp. These tests are limited to hospitals and physician's offices due to the wired interface and complex monitoring systems. The motivation of this project is to create a wireless non-contact, unobtrusive sensing system that offers improvements in comfort to the patient and provides long-term monitoring data to the healthcare personnel.
