Students

I have mentored many talented students and learned a lot from them in the process. Some of these students include:

2019

Summer Tao

Charyl Tan

Charyl was doing research with us during the summer of 2019. She was in charge of preparing a localization demo for the footstep project (inspired by the Harry Potter's Marauder map). During this time, I had meeting with her at least once a week and tracked her progress. I also worked closely with her to develop a visualization for the demo using Matlab app development toolbox.

Sarah Hamilton

Sarah was doing research with us during the summer of 2019. She was in charge of collecting data, do some data mining analysis, and possibly help with the writing of a journal paper about handwashing. During this time, I had meeting with her on a weekly basis and tracked her progress. I also worked closely with her to collect the data and develop the algorithms.

Laixi Shi

Laixi was doing research with us during the spring of 2019. She was working on the multiple people tracking problem. As part of this project, we had frequent meetings and discussed the algorithm development. The result of this collaboration was a paper submitted to Sensys 2019.

2018

Clara Nelson & Ahmed Al-badawi

Clara and Ahmed were working with us during the summer of 2018. They were in charge of designing, building, and modelling a wooden floor platform. During this time, we had frequent meetings to track the project progress. The created floor has been used in many of the following papers.

2017

Edmund Lee

Edmund was working with me during the spring of 2017. He was in charge of analyzing a large vibration dataset we have collected in a nursing home. During this time, we had weekly meetings to track the project progress, prepare the data visualizations, and develop the necessary algorithms to query the data. Further, I have guided him for developing codes to synchronize the camera and vibration data.

2016

Yubo Zhang

Yubo was working with me during the winter of 2016. She was in charge of analyzing the video dataset we have collected in a nursing home. During this time, we had weekly meetings to track the project progress and discuss the project. Further, I have guided her for developing codes and algorithms to detect motion and localize objects using video data.

Angela Wu

Angela was working with me during the summer of 2016. She was in charge of transferring our footstep detection demo from labview to the data acquisition toolbox of Matlab. During this time, we had weekly meetings to track the project progress and discuss the project. Further, we have worked closely on conducting a 2-weeks deployment in a nursing home in Pittsburgh. This video summarizes our collaboration.

Qianyue Zhang

Qianyue (Claire) was working with me during the spring of 2016. She was working with us on collecting some footstep data. During this time, we had weekly meetings to track the project progress and discuss the project.
