 My interests are in the areas of biomedical instrumentation and data processing. My research has always been focussed on understanding how biomedical engineering can help to characterise and model physiological phenomenon that occur in the human body. 

With my talented team, I am developing techniques and technologies for a wide range of applications: from wearable medical devices to rehabilitation treatments, from biometric recognition to driver safety.
