    Personal profile


    I am an Assistant Professor at Research Centre for Intelligent Healthcare, in the cluster of Healthcare Sensing Technology. My research has spanned a wide range of areas within Biomedical Engineering and Electronic Engineering, especially developing advanced signal processing approaches for healthcare applications.

    I am currently working on the research topics of Preterm Birth Prediction and Pregnancy Monitoring. My research vision is to reduce health inequalities, particularly to reduce stillbirth, maternal and neonatal mortality, improve the awareness of the group of pregnant women and enhance the engagement of pregnant women with healthcare interventions. I have successfully led the projects funded by, e.g., NIHR, UKRI, as the project lead, collaborating with clinicians and midwives at UHCW NHS Trust and Birmingham City University.

    My previous research has also focused on implementing mathematical theories into clinical neuroscience, where EEG and EMG were used to develop novel algorithms to aid the classification and stratification of patients with movement disorders.
