Research

My primary research interest is in identifying pathways that influence and improve safety and health using wearable sensors and artificial intelligence methods. The innovative research approach utilizes a systems framework that is driven by design of wearable tools with the goal of improving human well-being and system performance. Our research study designs are both observational and experimental, based in both the laboratory and the real environment. The primary outcomes of much of our research in this direction are:

  1. the prevention of worker injuries and promote occupational safety outcomes;
  2. to support patient-centric healthcare by advancing the knowledge of patients’ pre-operative education and post-operative tele-rehabilitation.
