    Expertise Sought My group has developed an ultrathin and ultrasoft e-tattoo platform for the mobile sensing of physiological signals from any part of the skin. Currently, the wireless e-tattoo is capable of measuring all electrophysiological signals (e.g. ECG, EMG, EEG, EOG), seismocardiogram (SCG), blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse wave velocity, skin temperature, and skin hydration, out of which we want to extract heart rate, respiratory rate, core temperature and blood pressure. Our platform is also versatile for integrating new materials and devices. Therefore, here are expertise we are looking for:
    1. New materials for physiological sensing
    2. Physiological signal processing
    3. Data mining, machine learning and inference
    4. Flexible battery
    5. Low power IC
