Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
Achievements in all fields of engineering and fabrication methods have led towards optimization and integration of multiple sensing devices into a concise system. These advances have caused significant innovation in various commercial, industrial, and research efforts. Integrations of subsystems have important applications for sensor systems in particular. The need for reporting and real time awareness of a device’s condition and surroundings have led to sensor systems being implemented in a wide variety of fields. From environmental sensors for agriculture, to object characterization and biomedical sensing, the application for sensor systems has impacted all modern facets of innovation. With these innovations, however, additional sources of errors can occur, that can cause new but exciting challenges for such integrated devices. Such challenges range from error correction and accuracy to power optimization. Researchers have invested significant time and effort to improve the applicability and accuracy of sensors and sensor systems. Efforts to reduce inherent and external noise of sensors can range from hardware to software solutions, focusing on signal processing and exploiting the integration of multiple signals and/or sensor types. My research work throughout my career has been focused on deployable and integrated sensor systems. Their integration not only in hardware and components but also in software, machine learning, pattern recognition, and overall signal processing algorithms to aid in error correction and noise tailoring in all their hardware and software components.
