Researcher Working on Wearable Computers to Monitor Health

Dr. Roozbeh Jafari, assistant professor of electrical engineering at UT Dallas, is developing wearable wireless computers that are about the size of a button. At that size, the system can be easily worn on the body, opening possibilities to improved health monitoring for the elderly and assistance in determining changes in medication dosage needs.

For this innovative idea, Dr. Jafari received a 2012 National Science Foundation CAREER (Faculty Early Career Development)award. The highly selective program funds research of junior faculty members who are considered likely to become leaders in their fields. Recipients are selected on the basis of creative early development plans that effectively integrate research and education within the context of the mission of their respective institutions.
