Function: PhD Student


Research: Under the supervision of Dr. Val Jones and Prof. Hermie Hermens, I will be investigating the implementation of Clinical Decision Support Systems on mobile devices. This forms part of the EU-funded MobiGuide project, which aims to develop a patient guidance system that can, at anytime and anywhere, provide personalized and evidence-based medical advice to the patient. The project is coordinated by the University of Haifa, and other collaborators include colleagues from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev as well as fellow members of the BSS group (e.g. Nekane Larburu).


I was born in Hong Kong in 1989, and prior to joining the BSS group, I studied Biomedical Engineering at the University of Cambridge. As part of my studies, I did a short internship with a geotechnical company in Hong Kong (Victor Li & Associates Ltd.), where I created a simple MathCAD procedure for analyzing seepage flow. Later, for my Master’s thesis, I developed a computer program that can parameterize a patient’s oxygen exchange performance from pulse oximetry measurements. In July 2011, I graduated from Cambridge with a B.A. and M.Eng. degree, and as of February 2012, I am working on Clinical Decision Support Systems at the University of Twente. My main research interests are in the medical applications of signal processing, decision support systems and informatics in general.
