MeetUp: Mobile Health Sensor Big Data Research

Posted: January 19, 2017
The next in the popular ongoing ECE MeetUp events, focuses on the department's role in mobile health sensor "Big Data" research.

On Thursday Feb. 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., students, faculty and alumni are invited to join the ECE Alumni Society for an evening focused on socializing, networking and learning alongside fellow ECE alumni about Ohio State's current role in this groundbreaking research and its impact on healthcare and society.

The recent trends of Big Data and Internet of Things have collided in a big way in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ohio State.

One of the researchers at the forefront of these initiatives in the area of smart health and wellbeing is Professor Emre Ertin, a member of the National Center of Excellence for Mobile Sensor Data-to-Knowledge (MD2K), a collection of researchers across the country that is advancing biomedical discovery and improving health through Mobile Sensor Big Data.

Ertin specializes in biomedical sensor design and statistical signal processing with application to sensor networks and mobile health. He developed a wearable RF heart sensor that feeds data to a cell phone app, which processes real-time health stats for early detection of conditions that require attention. His work aids in the monitoring and detection of chronic disease progression, ultimately saving lives and improving health.
