The Bio-Electromagnetics Laboratory
at Stevens Institute of Technology
Our research is focused on developing methods and instruments for early, simple, and efficient diagnosis of chronic diseases, including cancer. We have a diverse background ranging from electromagnetics, antenna engineering, and microwave design to wearable systems and personalized healthcare. We combine these areas in unique and original ways to perform high-impact research in several areas. Current research is in three main directions:
1) Exploiting the Millimeter-Wave Imaging Technology for Skin Cancer Detection
2) Non-Contact Vital Signs Monitoring Using Doppler Radars
3) Wearable, Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Monitoring
