Wireless Personal Sensors

Standoff detection of Ballisto-cardiography (BCG) by tracking facial hair movement in videos

Our research bridges the gap between science and real world needs, by transforming new fundamental chemical sensing principles into practical solutions.  We develop low cost, portable, and easy-to-use tools that can empower users with minimal training to perform simple diagnosis and disease management. Our devices can report chemical biomarkers non-invasively, and body exposure to pollutants.

Our efforts focus on the creation of: 1- sensitive and selective chemical sensors, 2- smart sample collection systems, 3- unambiguous calibration methods, 4- robust sensors’ signal processing, and 5- easy-to-use interfaces. We bind these capabilities to smart phones, thereby increasing resources for mobile health. Our team is a multidisciplinary group of enthusiastic engineers, chemists, physicists, and healthcare professionals; our mission is to enable people to take responsibility of their personal health or their loved ones.
