New Students

Undergraduate

I am looking for outstanding undergraduate students who are interested to participate in one of my ongoing projects/clinical trials. Basic understanding of programming (e.g., courses CS31/CS32) or signal processing (e.g., EE113/EE102) is strongly recommended. The students are encouraged to enroll in corresponding undergraduate research courses such as CS199 or E87. Requirements for undergraduate students:

  • You must be already a student at UCLA.
  • You need to send me your resume

Graduate

Few openings are available for masters students. If you are a current UCLA masters student (in electrical engineering, computer engineering, biomedical engineering, or computer science) and look for an exciting project in the area of wireless health, please feel free to contact me. Priority will be given to second-year masters students with experience in one or more of these areas: Machine Learning, Biomedical Signal Processing, Mobile Computing, and Cyber Physical Systems. Requirements for masters students:

  • You must be already a student at UCLA.
  • You need to send me your resume
  • You must take a corresponding seminar course (e.g., CS199/EE199) as you pursue a project
