Areas of expertise: 

I am interested in electromagnetic (EM)-based solutions with applications in diagnostic, therapeutic, supportive or assistive medical technologies. These EM-based technologies are promising due to their low-cost, minimally invasive nature, and the potential for combined diagnosis and treatment (i.e., theranostics), or combined monitoring and proactive intervention or correction. My research approach incorporates innovation in engineering with knowledge from multiple fields in order to deliver results that are timely, and of interest to both the medical and engineering communities. I strive to keep research driven by concrete needs, with a clinically-informed and commercially-validated approach to medical technologies. Working in this area is very rewarding, as any contributions can directly help both patients and the general public, and improve their health and quality of life.
