Interdisciplinary collaboration holds great promise for improving healthcare around the world. Combining wearable devices with expertise in engineering, medicine, information technology, and design, for example, can facilitate better decision-making by providing clinicians with the data most relevant to treating patients from afar.
In this presentation, MIT alumnus Todd P. Coleman (M.S. and Ph.D., MIT) will discuss the complex challenges involved in developing and implementing a suite of tools that transforms “big data” into “small, relevant” data to aid decision-making in perinatal health and chronic disease management. He will:
A Q&A will follow the presentation. We invite you to join us!
Todd P. Coleman holds B.S. degrees in electrical engineering and computer engineering (both summa cum laude) from the University of Michigan. He earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from MIT in electrical engineering and conducted postdoctoral studies at MIT in neuroscience.
Currently an associate professor of bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego, Coleman directs the university’s Neural Interaction Laboratory and codirects the Center for Perinatal Health. His research is highly interdisciplinary, focusing on the intersection of bio-electronics, medicine, and machine learning. He is conducting research in wearable health by wedding his research group’s expertise in large-scale analytics with its recent development of “epidermal electronics,” featured in Science in 2011. Current applications include perinatal health, chronic disease management, and cognitive monitoring during aging.
The National Academy of Engineering named Coleman a 2015 Gilbreth Lecturer. He is a science advisor for the Science & Entertainment Exchange at the National Academy of Sciences, and his research has been spotlighted by CNN, BBC, and The New York Times..MMa
