Research

Research grant awarded for the research project: "Autodidactic non-invasive monitoring system for vulnerable users with alerts using machine learning" under the 'First Grants Scheme 2019/20'. The aim of this  project is to develop an autodidactic tool that learns a vulnerable individual's daily routine so that alerts can be generated if that routine starts changing. Using a data-driven approach this tool will collect, in real-time and in a non-invasive way, data generated by smart wearables. This tool will also measure individual's heart rate, temperature and breathing rate and the current aim is to enhance the existing application to add on new features and vital measurements, such as blood oxygenation which is a key indicator of overall wellness. This will be an added benefit with the existing features that can monitor epilepsy, fall over and boundary restrictions.

Ongoing project (online survey): "Nursing Students' Attitudes towards People Living With HIV/AIDS in the UK", aiming to explore nurse students' perceptions and attitudes (positive or negative) towards people who live with HIV/AIDS.
