Photonics Engineering and Health Technology Research Group
Our group conducts research into the use of light and pressure for sensing and characterisation of dynamic systems of industrial and biological origin.
Our research group has a clear scientific interest in the photonics and dynamics that govern the interaction of light and biological tissues, as well as the practical engineering implementation required to translate laboratory results into commercial products. Research activities include areas of sports technologies, human physiology, computing science, and mechanical and systems engineering.
The group collaborate in biomedical engineering research projects and programmes with a number of national and international research groups and institutions. It has attained international recognition for its research in opto-physiological modelling to describe human physiological phenomena by effective capture of light trans-illuminating tissue, and non-contact vital signs monitoring, as referenced in NASA Future of Emergency Care.
