Research profile:

Dr. Morshed's research interests are body-worn electronic patch sensor development using inkjet printing and utilization of these and other wearables for mobile health applications utilizing machine learning. Embedded systems (ES) are electronic information processing elements embedded into cyber-physical systems (CPS) and contain micro-controllers dedicated for sensing, actuation, and/or control. Our research group focuses on cutting-edge ES combined with nanotechnology and Inkjet printed (IJP) additive manufactured flexible electronics for ultra-low power or zero-power wearables & body-worn sensors and artificially intelligent (AI) real-time signal processing techniques at Edge Computing realized with smartphones for mobile health (mHealth) applications towards Smart and Connected Communities (SCC) and Smart Cities.

Our research is/was supported by National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Strengthening Communities Initiative (SCI) and multiple FedEx Innovation and Technology Development grants. We have established many external collaborations including University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), Special Kids & Families (SKF), Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, and Memphis District of the United Methodist Church (UMC) for our research studies. Due to the highly trans-disciplinary nature of our research, we collaborate with researchers from varied disciplines (Public Health, Chemistry, Psychology, Physics, and medical professionals) that span across various institutes.
