My current research is mainly focused on wearable technologies. Monitoring of heart rate during physical exercise is an important feature in many modern wearable devices such as wristbands and smart watches. However, obtaining high quality photoplethysmographic (PPG) signals during physical exercise is difficult and challenging as PPG signals are usually contaminated by very strong motion artifacts caused by subject’s hand movements. The aim of my current research is to investigate the effects of motion artifacts on the quality of acquired PPG signals and propose solution to mitigate or ideally remove its destructive affects.
