Research Projects

  1. Infrared Imaging Tools for Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC) Diagnosis Guided by RGB-D Sensing


    In this paper, we present a novel automated image acquisition and processing system that integrates infrared and RGB-D sensors for NEC detection.

  2. Applying Data Preprocessing Methods to Predict Premature Birth


  3. Developing an Automated Clinical Trending Tool for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
