I’m currently a MASc student in the Systems Design Engineering Department. Under Dr. Boger’s supervision, I focus on building an innovative sleep monitoring wearable wristband that combines the traditional 3-axis accelerometer sensor and a temperature sensor. This system will not only be able to capture normal sleep-related parameters (onset, offset, etc…), but will capture the information regarding our internal circadian rhythms. I hope my research can deepen researchers’ understanding of both people’s external sleep patterns and the internal biological rhythms that make sleep happen. Building advanced systems that help people to better understand their health status will always be my research interests.
