"As a relatively new faculty member trying to solve a problem as intractable as alarm fatigue, I've come to rely on ISU to help navigate what's possible technically at UCSF. Their guidance and team has helped supplement my lab and boost our ability to get a product to market."

My research program’s goal is to innovate intelligent informatics systems to enhance healthcare professionals’ ability in utilizing Big Clinical Data to achieve more precise assessment and anticipation of patient state changes. Our team’s core expertise lies in various physiological signal modeling and processing and developing machine learning models. Our projects are interdisciplinary in nature. We are keen in learning new clinical/physiological problems that can be approached using our core engineering expertise. We are capable of developing and validating prototypes of intelligent systems equipped with our algorithms. Our current projects cover problems derived from neurocritical care and neurosurgical care of patients as well as from general in-hospital patient monitoring.
