Research Interests

My main focus is teaching and creating new and improved teaching methodologies. For research, my work focuses on creating technologies to make patients' lives easier, such as non-contact vital sign monitoring and non-invasive continuous blood pressure monitoring. I specialize in signal and image processing, machine learning, and circuit and system design.
