Research Assistant - Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Participate in developing new electro-mechanical devices for patient monitoring and medical diagnosis. The technology is based on the detection of body sound signatures and understanding their mechanisms of generation. In this lab we combine novel sensors, computerized measurements, advanced signal processing, and computer simulations to describe the acoustic properties of body sounds. This novel approach offers several advantages including: low cost, small size, non invasiveness, and suitability to remote monitoring.
