roject Description

In this project, the Ph.D. candidate will be partly assigned to two projects:

1) Develop an image processing system that counts white blood cells in the nailfold capillaroscopy

The project will investigate a variety of image processing, computer vision and machine learning techniques to estimate human immune function using nailfold capillaroscopy.

2) Develop a biomedical application using multi-modal physiological signals

In this project, the candidate will analyze multi-modal physiological signals including, but not limited to, Electrokardiogram (EKG), Electromyogram (EMG), photoplethysmography (PPG), Electroencephalogram (EEG) and etc., and will develop a machine learning application using the acquired physiological signals. This project is at an early stage, so the goals and specifications of the application will be specified as the project progresses.

Lab Info:
