Projects: Senior Design: “Vision Assistive Communication Device for Patients with Motor Impairment” Led team to design through the School of Engineering as an effective and reproducible method to improve the current communication system for the patient-caretaker relationship. This result is an important prerequisite for the increasing need for high-quality patient care to reform communication in this specific therapy division.

Junior Design: “Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Detected by Harness System” Led team to created through the Biomedical Engineering Department as a low-cost, easy to use breathing-pause detection device for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome detection. The prototype must cost less than $100 to make and must be sold for less than $50. It must have a reliability of 80-85% and must be tailored to users with minimal literacy and no technological background. Bioinstrumentation Design: “Early Detection of Ventricular Tachycardia in Hospitalized Patients”

Led team project initiated to implement an easy-to-use, affordable, and accurate device and software for increasing patient-staff efficiency in detecting and addressing heart-condition related issues, specifically Ventricular Tachycardia.
