Personal profile

Biography

I am a leading research expert in medical device and technology development with physiological measurements and bio-signal processing, working across multidisciplinary areas with electronic engineers, medical physicists, computer scientists, clinical consultants, industrial partners, guideline makers, and allied professionals at different stages along the pathway of medical device development and commercialization. I have earned my international reputation in research and development of novel cardiovascular technologies and devices with scientific and socioeconomic impacts to address unmet clinical needs, particularly in novel blood pressure and arterial stiffness measurement techniques, and recent developments of wearable devices and IoT monitoring system using unique waveform characteristics derived from physiological signals for monitoring respiration rate, predicting pre-term labor and pregnancy induced hypertension, and developing big-data-centric hearing impairment rehabilitation solution.

My significant academic achievement and contributions have been demonstrated in leading funded research, supervising research students and staff, publishing world class research outcomes, editing peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, developing novel devices and evaluating device effectiveness.

I have also been well recognized for my inspirational leadership in academic course development, and my enthusiasm in promoting knowledge and technology exchanges, building up educational and research collaborations, and facilitating technology adoption in developing countries, including China, Jordan and Nigeria, with the aims to promote the adoption of healthcare technologies in these partner countries.
