Ian is a 4th year PhD student in Bioengineering at Northeastern University (NEU). He is co-advised by Dr. David Paydarfar and Dr. Dagmar Sternad (NEU).
Ian is interested in formulating research and development of new and advanced signal processing methods and algorithms targeted towards predicting life-threatening events in preterm infants. His current work focuses on developing algorithms to capture a movement signal from the plethysmography signal of preterm infants. He has worked in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to plan, design, and conduct experimental protocols for various IRB-approved studies: investigating cardio-respiratory effects of skin-to-skin care (Kangaroo care), and investigating the effects of stochastic vibration on preterm infants and opioid-exposed infants.
Ian received his Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Akron (2008) and his bachelors in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Mumbai.
