    Talk Title: Wearable Opto-mechanical System for Cardiovascular Monitoring: From Methodological Design to Device Development

    Abstract: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. There are about 47% of sudden cardiac deaths occurring outside a hospital, which reveals the demand for wearable medical devices that can monitor the cardiovascular risk factors of individuals frequently, accurately, and unobtrusively in their daily life. At the same time, the use of wearable medical devices allows healthcare givers to assess patient health conditions and provide medical guidance in a timely and non-contact way.

    The photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor composed of light-emitting diode and photodetector has been widely adopted by various wearable fitness trackers owing to its low cost, compact size and ease of use. However, so far, the applications of PPG are mainly limited to heart rate and blood oxygen saturation measurement. By utilizing the wavelength dependence of the light penetration depth into the skin, we have developed a multi-wavelength PPG (MWPPG) sensing approach which allows for probing blood pulsations in different types of skin blood vessels.

    In this talk, two MWPPG applications for cardiovascular monitoring will be presented: 1) cuffless arterial blood pressure measurement with a single MWPPG sensor; and 2) an opto-mechanical device equipped with an MWPPG sensor to enable arterial and capillary blood pressure measurement.

    Biography: Jing Liu is a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, University of Southern California. She received her Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2018 and her B.S. degree in Computer Science from Wuhan University in 2014. Her main achievements include the inventions of multi-wavelength photoplethysmography for wearable blood pressure monitoring, which is under commercialization in the Hong Kong Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities Programme. Her current research interests are cardiac modeling, physiological signal processing, and machine learning for cardiovascular health informatics.

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Receptions & Special Events


    Congratulating the Classes of 2020 & 2021, celebrating their accomplishments, and welcoming them to the Trojan Family as young alumni!

    We know that this is not how you envisioned celebrating your last week of classes, but rest assured the Trojan Family experience does not end with Commencement - it's lifelong! Register today for 2021 Graduation SCend Off to learn how multi-generational alumni leaders stay connected to the Trojan network wherever they go.

    Throughout the event, alumni will tell you how:
    They leveraged the Trojan Network from student days to where they are today
    They built upon the foundational network they created while attaining their degrees
    The Trojan Family continues to support them throughout life

  • Repeating EventCP2K: Running Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulations

    Wed, Apr 28, 2021 @ 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Workshops & Infosessions


    Presented by: USC Center for Advanced Research Computing

    An introduction to computational tools implemented within the CP2K program package. The most standard methods as well as some of the more advanced features will be introduced by overviews of background theory and through examples of application, while encouraging modular, flexible, and problem-oriented thinking. Recurring topics in the workshop are the scaling of algorithms, the combination of different levels of theory and of sampling, and tools and strategies for the analysis of results. This ongoing workshop is currently running on Wednesdays during the Spring 2021 semester.
