Virtual Reality for Smart Health

This research project is aimed at developing VR/AR models to implement digital twin for the electromechanical function of cardiac myocytes. In the digital world, there will be ions (ca2+, Na+, K+ ...), membranes, ion flows, ionic gates, cell contractions, and action potentials etc. We will use occulus, and/or HTC VIVE VR systems to implement the models of a cardiac cell.

Complex Systems Monitoring, Modeling and Control Lab: Our lab focuses on data-driven modeling and analysis of complex systems for process monitoring, fault diagnostics/prognostics, quality improvement and performance optimization.

Research topics of interest include:

  1. Process Monitoring, Modeling, and Control;
  2. Health Information Systems and Healthcare Informatics;
  3. Computer Simulation, AR/VR modeling, and Optimization;
  4. Design and Analysis of Physical and Computer Experiments;
  5. Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Big Data Analytics for Large-Scale Complex Systems; (vi) Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos.
