Research interests

"If you must choose one single idea to work on for the rest of your life, what will that be ?"

In 2003, my grandma passed away with severe dementia. At the time, there was no existing technology to help communicating her daily needs, or her whereabouts for the carer to attend to swiftly. It was a struggle for my family to provide her the end-of-life care that she deserved.

For the past decade, my research has been around navigation and tracking, with an emphasis on contact tracing and healthcare monitoring. I have developed novel, practical systems combining the ubiquitous mobile sensors with machine learning.

Since 2017, I have published on average 3 papers, journals a year, most of them as the lead author. See here for a full list of my publications.

Supervisory Interests

I am currently active in the following research topics:
  • Smartphone based contact tracing.
  • Mobile health.
  • Indoor positioning.
  • Applying Machine Learning into the above areas.

The nature of my high impact, practical research, and being a young lecturer (am still coding, and collecting data myself) will benefit enthusiastic students who would like to apply their ideologies in the real world.

If you are interested in doing research on the above topics, feel free to get in touch.
