Research and Expertise

  • Detection and Treatment of Sleep apnea; Biological Signal Processing, Systems and Control, Biomedical Design of Respiratory Assist Systems,

    I have over three decades of experience in researching means and methods of improving detection and treatment of disease using mathematical modeling and signal processing. The focus of my research has been on methods and devices that will translate to clinics in the safest and fastest way. This focus has led to invention of a therapeutic device for treatment of sleep disordered breathing. Another work, while I was with industry, led to the development of mathematical control algorithms for the first-FDA-approved microprocessor-based critical care ventilator.   It is estimated that well over one million patients have been treated by these two technologies. Further work has resulted in 9 U.S. patents, and one additional has been recently filed and is currently pending. I have received Chancellor’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Award from the Chancellor of The University of Texas System and been honored to be elected as the Charter Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.  I have published more than 120 scientific papers regarding my research and have given numerous invited talks both internationally and domestically regarding my research. Most recently, I have been studying the relationship between cerebral hemodynamics and  sleep apnea.
