Summary: ‘My research investigates all aspects of how electronics interface with biology, particularly for wearable devices and personal health monitoring. This involves hardware – making electronics which can flex and stretch so that they better connect to the body. It also involves software – making artificial intelligence which can make sense of body signals, even in the presence of lots of interference (from devices which don’t connect very well to the body). In the Q&A session, I would like to talk about future directions in wearable technology, from the engineering… Read More »LIVE Q&A | Where Next With Wearables | 18:30 (UK time), 8 February 2021.
When I decided to study Electrical Engineering at university, I hadn’t thought much about what would come next. Spending my days as a first year undergraduate hearing about abstract electromagnetic theory seemed about as dull a subject as I could possibly imagine. Given the choice I would always have picked a soldering iron and a few hours in the lab over learning Biot-Savart Law or Gauss’ law. How on earth could Maxwell’s Equations, published circa 1861, possibly be of any use to me (or anyone?!) in the future? Somehow, a few years later, I found myself once again caught up… Read More »Sensing the Unknown: Using Electromagnetism to Find Hidden Objects – Dr Liam Marsh
