Dr Sijung Hu


Pronouns: He/him
  • Reader in Biomedical Engineering
  • Photonics Engineering and Health Technology Research Group Lead


After being awarded a PhD at Loughborough University in 2000, Sijung was invited to join Kalibrant Ltd as a Senior Scientist and Project Leader for research and development in vitro diagnostics. Sijung joined the Wolfson School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, Loughborough University as a Research Fellow in 2002, and Senior Research Fellow and Leader of the Photonics Engineering & Health Technology Research Group in 2006, with the creation of two innovative research platforms.

  • Opto-physiological Monitoring (OPM) is to study how light interacts within biological tissue, where the optical properties of the latter reflect the mechanical, physical and biochemical functions of the living organism. Consolidating optics/Tissue optics, electronics and algorithms into biomedical electronic systems, at component and systems levels, together with a team approach to problem solving to allow for a clear and rapid progression from fundamental research ideas to engineering realisation. OPM,  an emerging optoelectronic sensing technology, has been spun out as an independent business named Carelight, and Sijung is the Chief Scientific Officer. 
  • Dynamic Detection of Upper Breathing Airflow Pressure and Acoustic Sound (DA2SD) aims to research how effectively detect dynamic changes of upper breathing airflow pressure and acoustic sound, and simultaneously determine speaking or nonspeaking breathing patterns which are closely interrelated with bio-informatic or biometric messages. A hybrid electronic configuration to comprehensively detect human breathing profiles (with or without speech) and acoustic vibrations (speech when present) is the core of biomedical engineering to deliver innovative technology. DA2SD, as hybrid sensing technology for COPD, and speaking impairment, has been filed as a patent and working closely with multidiscipline experts across academics (James Fleming) and ACE Centre
