Mona Ghassemian (vice-Chair UK&Ireland Section) Workshop on: Wearable Systems – Design and implementation challenges

Abstract - This workshop addresses different aspect of wearable system design from wireless low power/low range communication systems down to data collection protocols and data translation. Open issues and challenges within each area are also explored as a source of inspiration towards future developments in wearables particularly for healthcare systems. Prototype developments (activity recognition, Parkinson Disease, Neurofeedback, and stress monitoring) followed by a demonstration will conclude this seminar.

Mona Ghassemian received her PhD in “Mobile and Personal Communications” from King’s College London in 2006 with NTT DoCoMo scholarship. After completion of her PhD she continued at King’s College London as a research associate in E-Sense (the 6th EU Framework Programme) and later as a visiting research associate when she joined University of Greenwich as a senior lecturer in computer networking (2007-2012) and SBU (2012-2018). She visited a number of universities; namely KCL, UoT, UCI, UPV, uni of Sydney, TU, and SUT to collaborate with their research groups. Her research interest is mainly on low power communication solutions for wireless sensor networks with a focus on smart health and well-being.
She is an active in various positions in IEEE UK & Ireland section and the IEEE Region 8 since 2012, currently serving as IEEE UK & Ireland vice-chair, IEEE R8 SAC –past chair and R8 SIGHT committee member.
