SEMINAR: Smart and Connected Soft Bioelectronics for Advancing Human Healthcare and Human-Machine Interfaces
December 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Dr. Yeo has established a strong research program in the field of nanoengineered human-machine electronic interfaces. The goal of Dr. Yeo’s research is to understand fundamentals of soft materials, deformable mechanics, biological interface forces, and nanomanufacturing methods for development of stretchable hybrid biosensors and bioelectronics. The comprehensive study of mechanics, materials, and manufacturing for biosystems aims to advance human healthcare, disease diagnostics, therapeutics, and human-machine interaction.
In this talk, he will discuss about recent research works on soft, smart and connected wearable bioelectronics. Specifically, this talk will include some examples of wireless, stretchable wearable electronics for ergonomic human-machine interfaces based on the detection of brain signals and various types of non-invasive monitoring of electrocardiograms and abnormality detection via integrated deep learning algorithm.
Dr. Yeo is a TEDx alumnus and biomedical engineer. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering and Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Yeo received his PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle in 2011. From 2011-2013, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Beckman Institute and Frederick Seitz Materials Research Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has over 55 peer-reviewed journal publications, 5 issued patents, over 40 recognitions in honors and awards, including 2019 American Heart Association Innovative Project Award, Hanwha Non-Tenured Faculty Award, and Outstanding Scholar Award from Yonsei University. Dr. Yeo’s research has been supported by various agencies, including American Heart Association, National Science Foundation, Alzheimer’s Association, and Department of Defense-NextFlex Manufacturing Institute.
