Software and Societal Systems Department (S3D)
My research focuses on designing, implementing, and testing new sensing systems. I typically focus on repurposing and extending the capabilities of sensors and devices around us. This approach allows us to add various functionalities to our daily-use devices with negligible hardware modifications. I am interested in solving problems in various domains, including health sensing, technologies for global development, and novel interactions. Many times solutions in such domains need to be used and evaluated by the end user in their daily lives. Consequently, I collaborate closely with medical professionals, bio-engineers, and designers to develop end-to-end solutions that can be immediately used and evaluated outside the lab environment.
